Blurring the boundaries of classical music, PROJECT Trio is a passionate, high-energy chamber music ensemble comprised of three virtuosic composer/performers from Brooklyn, New York. Blending their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles, PROJECT Trio captivates audiences of all ages with genre-bending performances that combine classical repertoire with elements of hip-hop and popular music.
“PROJECT Trio runs on high-octane chamber music!”
PROJECT Trio’s unique sound and infectious grooves have refreshed old favorites such as Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, as well as Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Dave Brubeck's Blue Rondo alla Turk. Beatbox flutist Greg Pattillo has been featured on Nickelodeon’s iCarly and according to The New York Times is simply “the best in the world at what he does.”
