PERFORMING ARTS RESIDENCY & CONCERT SERIES: Portland Cello Project’s “Purple Reign”
Saturday, April 9, 2022 - 7:30 PM
What started in 2006 as a one-off with a group of nine cellists onstage at Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge has evolved into a nationally recognized performing, recording and educational group with a revolving cast of cellists. Portland Cello Project (PCP) has developed a three-part philosophy that has mostly remained unchanged over the years: Bring the cello places you wouldn't normally see it; perform music on the cello you wouldn't normally associate with the instrument alongside music from the Western Classical Tradition; and build bridges between different musical communities through education, community outreach, and collaboration with myriad artists.
And now PCP 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, PCP will perform a lively evening of diversely curated music that influenced—or was influenced by—The Purple One.
