Project Trio Visits School

CENTRAL POINT, Ore. – An innovative trio is putting a new twist on chamber music. It’s where Beethoven meets beat-box.

Greg Pattillo, Eric Stephenson and Peter Seymour are “Project Trio”. Three classically trained musicians who now play a high-energy mix of classical, jazz, hip-hop and rock. The group is here as part of the Britt Festival’s educational outreach.

β€œTo know that they are working with professionals who are really cutting edge and interesting and doing always interesting new things with established forms and I hope they are inspired to create things on their own and have the music touch them,” said Britt Marketing Director Sara King Cole

On Friday, Project Trio will appear in the SOU Recital Hall at 3 p.m. and at the Britt Pavillion at 8 p.m. as part of Britt’s “on The Stage” Series.
