This week’s Symphonies of Iowa features the wcfsymphony’s “PROJECT Trio” concert! The TRIO joins the orchestra for the second half of their program, performing their piece Djangish as well as Adam Schoenberg’s Scatter Concerto.

Gramophone Magazine recently singled out PROJECT Trio as “an ensemble willing and able to touch on the gamut of musical bases ranging from Baroque to nu-Metal and taking in pretty much every stylism in between,” while The Wall Street Journal hailed the trio for their “wide appeal, subversive humor and first-rate playing.” The New York Times has called beatboxing flutist Greg Pattillo “the best in the world at what he does.” Peter Seymour joins on double bass with Eric Stephenson on cello to create their musically-stunning group.

The piece Djangish was written specifically for this ensemble of double bass, cello, and flute. The trio also performs Schoenberg’s Scatter Concerto with the orchestra, which was composed for their ensemble as well. Don’t miss this broadcast to hear a unique style combining the “virtuosity of world-class artists” with the “energy of rockstars.”

Join us Sunday, July 1st at 4 p.m. and again on Monday, July 2nd at 7 p.m for this week’s Symphonies of Iowa broadcast!
