The instrumental ensemble PROJECT Trio, www.projecttrio.com, with beat-boxing flutist Greg Pattillo, cellist Eric Stephenson and bassist Peter Seymour, will perform at the Edmonds Center for the Arts at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 2.

In addition to the concert, they will also provide a series of education programs during their visit.

Combining the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, PROJECT Trio is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music.

Since their formation in 2005, PROJECT Trio has become one of the most popular instrumental ensembles of its generation, playing more than 100 performances worldwide each year, from clubs to Carnegie Hall, for fans of all ages.

Using social media to broaden their reach, the Trio has its own YouTube channel, which has more than 77 million views and 85,000 subscribers, making PROJECT Trio one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the Internet.

PROJECT Trio’s discography includes five recordings and a DVD, “PROJECT Trio: Live In Concert.”

This season will see the release of their sixth recording of original new music.  Their latest recordings, “When Will Then Be Now” (Harmonyville Records), and their catalog-spanning “Random Roads Collection” (Tummy Touch Records), debuted at the top of both the Billboard Canadian and U.S. classical and jazz charts.

Recently on NPR's Morning Edition and NPR Music's series, Heavy Rotation, hosts around the U.S. selected “Sweet Pea,” from PROJECT's 2012 “Random Roads Collection” album, as "one of the best new tunes out there."
