Garnering attention for arrangements ranging from Bach’s “Sonata for Viola Da Gamba and Piano” to Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me A River,” the Portland Cello Project has won acclaim playing 800 works not often or never before performed on the cello in venues across the United States. The group, launched in 2007, is composed of a changing roster of players. Their shows, as momentous and fluid as their music, move from intimate performances with four to six cellists to large arrangements featuring a choir, woodwinds, percussion, and horns. The Project’s mission is three-fold: to connect, innovate, and collaborate.
The Portland Cello Project actively partners with talented independent musicians, many with roots based in the Pacific Northwest, including The Dandy Warhols and Eric Bachmann of Crooked Fingers.
Tomorrow night, the Portland Cello Project travels to Tieton for a performance at the Mighty Tieton Warehouse at 608 Wisconsin Ave. All proceeds benefit Tieton Arts and Humanities, supporting the not-for-profit organization’s community and arts programming and initiatives. Tickets are $10.00 and are available online through Brown Paper Tickets. The performance starts at 7 p.m. and children are welcome.
