Popular YouTube ensemble to visit QCA in October 17-20
PROJECT Trio, a mixed trio of bass, flute, and cello, will be in residence Oct. 17-20, presenting educational lectures and demonstrations to elementary, junior high and community college students.
Their residency is the third in Quad City Arts’ 2017-2018 Visiting Artist Series.
Blending their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles, PROJECT Trio has made an impact on audiences of all ages. Gramophone Magazine singled out the group as “an ensemble willing and able to touch on the gamut of musical bases ranging from Baroque to nu-metal and taking in pretty much every stylism in between.”
The trio’s YouTube channel has over 80 million views and more than 111,000 subscribers, making PROJECT Trio one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the internet.
The 2017-2018 season of the Visiting Artist Series runs through April 2018 and features nine performing arts residencies, including a storyteller, musical ensembles, and a jazz dance company.
