For a classically trained chamber group, Brooklyn's Project Trio sounds unlike anything in the world of classical music. Eric Stephenson plays the cello, Peter Seymour plays the double bass and Greg Patillo plays the flute - and beatboxes. Like, beatboxes with the flute, as he's playing it. Really.
If that takes a moment for that to sink in, don't worry - as hard as a beatboxing flutist is to envision, Patillo pulls it off with aplomb. One song in, and you'll be wondering how no one had thought of this combination. This Saturday, Project Trio joins the Kansas City Symphony in a re-imagined version of Rossini's William Tell Overture, along with some original Project Trio arrangements.
