PROJECT Trio Concert
September 10 - September 11, 2011
The Boston Flute Academy kicks off its 4th season by presenting PROJECT Trio in concert on September 10, 2011. PROJECT Trio is a passionate, high energy chamber music ensemble comprised of three virtuosic composer/performers from Brooklyn, NY: famous beatboxing flutist Greg Pattillo, cellist Eric Stephenson, and bassist Peter Seymour. Blending their classical training with an eclectic taste in musical styles, PROJECT Trio has made an impact on audiences of all ages. Bursting onto the scene with their landmark videos, right out of the internet generation, PROJECT Trio is a musical experience defining a new level of entertainment!
The concert will open with performances by three of the Boston Flute Academy’s top students, including Brendan Dooley of Worcester, Emma Huelskamp of Natick, and Jinji Zhang of Boxborough, MA. All three are among the nation’s leading high school flutists and are preparing for classical performance careers of their own. For this concert, they will explore some of the techniques that Pattillo and PROJECT Trio have pioneered. The audience will hear the exciting new sounds that young musicians are embracing for the future.
PROJECT Trio will hold a pre-concert Improvisation Masterclass from 6:30 until 7:30pm, open to all concert ticketholders. On Sunday morning September 11th, Greg Pattillo will teach a Beatboxing Masterclass from 10:30 until 11:30am, followed by a meet-and-greet session and autograph opportunities with the entire group until noon. All events are presented by the Boston Flute Academy and held at the Maliotis Cultural Center on the Hellenic College Campus.. Free parking.
