Show Description

The Pacific Northwest's premiere alt-classical ensemble turns the evening purple, blending their deep textures with the unique harmonic landscape of the artistic power of Prince. Joined by musicians who have worked with Prince such as Saeeda Wright and Tyrone Hendrix, expect a lively evening of diversely-curated music that influenced or was influenced by The Purple One.

Crafted through the wildly innovative arrangements that have made Cello Project a perennial favorite all over the world, PCP brings Bach to Beck alongside classic Prince tributes all without missing a beat.

Educational Outreach Options

Portland Cello Project provides a wide variety of options to engage K-12 learners as well as audiences of all ages and backgrounds. From musical and non-musical demo/lectures, to master classes and workshops for more advanced musicians, there’s something for everyone. Many Cello Project members have advanced degrees specific to both musical performance and education and some are on staff or have been on staff in public and private K12 schools and at universities. 

Past highlights include workshops and demos suitable for public and private schools and universities, improvisational workshops and classical master classes for all ages/ability levels, numerous adult-beginner cello ensembles that meet regularly in Portland, and a special residency at the Hiland Mountain Correctional Center's women's orchestra in Eagle River Alaska. 

In addition to outreach opportunities specific to strings, Tyrone Hendrix, Saeeda Wright, and Farnell Newton are available for drum, vocal, and trumpet workshops respectively.

Cello Project Presenter Comments

"The Portland Cello Project always does well for us in Seattle. In fact, I think we could add another concert next time through. The band's imaginative set list and arrangements appeal to all walks of life: the casual listener, the adventurous classical folks, hipsters and the 'heads' out there. Patrons continue to ask about them throughout the season." --Scott Giampino. Triple Door and Benaroya Hall

"Doug and the entire PCP crew are always a joy to work with.  Their thoughtful and carefully crafted sets always leave the audience hungry for more.” --Matt King, Talent Buyer for True West Presents. 

“The Portland Cello Project are the most versatile group I have ever booked.  They can go from covering Rihanna at a down-and-dirty dance party in a rock club to performing a Benjamin Britten piece in an ornate 2000 seat theater with ease, while appealing to audiences of all ages.” --Matthew McLean. Monqui Presents

We have had so many wonderful and positive comments on the show. People really enjoyed Kat and the [Cello Project collaborative] work with Momentum Dance Collective.  Really a great night that hit on so many levels. I can’t thank you enough for all you did to make this happen. It was really a special night. --Jason Hodges. Anchorage Concert Association.
