Featuring the innovative chamber ensemble PROJECT: Trio as resident faculty, Project: Beyond the Page is based on PROJECT: Trio's successful camp programs in other locations. This unique summer learning experience will focus on Modern Chamber Music, using the faculty's F.I.R.E. Technique (Fundamentals of Improvisation, Rhythm, and Ensemble).
PROJECT: Trio is taking chamber music to a whole new level. Greg Pattillo (flute), Eric Stephenson (cello), and Peter Seymour (bass), are pushing the boundaries of classical music with a high-octane mix of jazz, hip-hop, and rock. The trio performs to enthusiastic audiences of all ages in concert halls, clubs, and classrooms around the world.
Acclaim for the Trio and its members runs the gamut from Downbeat Magazine, which exclaims PROJECT: Trio is "packed with musicianship, joy, and surprise" to The New York Times, which calls beat-boxing flutist Greg Pattillo "the best in the world at what he does." Fellow classical musicians rave, "PROJECT: Trio really has it all. They combine the fire and refinement of the finest classical chamber ensembles with the stage presences and energy of rock stars."
In addition to their extensive performing schedule, the Trio is dedicated to arts education, inspiring a whole new generation of concert going music lovers.
