NYU Skirball Center’s Big Red Chair Family Series Presents Unique Classical Music for Young Audiences by PROJECT Trio, October 16 at 7 PM

September 2, 2010

Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, PROJECT Trio is the chamber music ensemble whose creative style has reinvigorated classical music.  The group will perform at New York University’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts as part of the Big Red Chair Family Series on October 16, 2010 at 7 p.m.

Flutist Greg Pattillo, cellist Eric Stephenson, and bassist Peter Seymour make up PROJECT Trio.  Pattillo has been featured on Nickelodeon’s iCarly, and beat-boxes as he plays, energetically blending Hip-Hop rhythms with the flute.  Stephenson’s style ranges from classical and jazz to rock and folk music.  He is also a member of the IRIS Chamber Orchestra in Memphis, TN and the Colorado Music Festival.  Seymour, an award winning musician, has performed with a multitude of acclaimed artists and ensembles, including the Cleveland Orchestra and the New World Symphony.

All three artists are not only performers but also composers, and are nationally known for creating unique sounds with classical music.  PROJECT Trio’s YouTube channel has more than 62,000 subscribers and nearly 55,000,000 views making it the most popular classical ensemble on YouTube. The group’s new album PROJECT Trio can be heard on over 160 radio stations across the country. The album was a #1 selling CD for the first month after its release and is a regular in the top 25 classical selling albums on iTunes.   

PROJECT Trio is passionate about giving back to the community and building young audiences for classical music. The non-profit organization PROJECT is focused on educational outreach concerts and for providing the funds for the artists to travel across the country inspiring creativity and instilling a love of music.

This performance runs 75 minutes and is recommended for ages 8 and up. Tickets are $10-$15 and may be purchased online at www.skirballcenter.nyu.edu, by phone at 212.352.3101 (toll-free 866.811.4111), or in person at the Skirball Center Box Office.
