About Project Trio
Project Trio breaks down traditional ideas of chamber music. The genre-defying Trio is acclaimed by the press as "packed with musicianship, joy and surprise" and "exciting a new generation of listeners about the joys of classical and jazz music."
Gramophone Magazine recently 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," while The Wall Street Journal hailed the Trio for their "wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing." The New York Times has called beatboxing flutist Greg Pattillo "the best in the world at what he does."
The Trio was forged out of a collective desire to draw new and diverse audiences by performing high energy, top quality music.
