The Portland Cello Project: Genre-Crossing Genre Cellists

From Prairie Home Companion to punk rock clubs, The Portland Cello Project is pursuing its three-fold mission: To bring cellos to places they’ve never seen before, to play music on cellos you haven’t heard them play (think: Kanye West) and to build bridges between musical genres and cultural communities. With an 800-piece repertoire, no two shows are exactly alike, though all share an ability to excite and surprise audiences. As Spin Magazine wrote: “This indie orchestra gives classical music a jolt of energy.” Brought to WMPAC by the Arts Council of Big Sky, The Portland Cello Project takes to the stage on January 25.
