Since the group's inception in late 2007, Portland Cello Project has performed with a veritable “Who's Who?” list of Portland musicians, and they'll add to that list on this special night at the Crystal Ballroom, where they'll be joined on stage by the Corin Tucker Band, Typhoon, Golden Bears, and the delightful PHAME Academy Choir.
About the Portland Cello Project:
The first time you see the Portland Cello Project perform you might be perplexed when you hear affectionate fans shouting “We love PCP!”
In spite of a barrage of musical and visual sensory overload, you'll figure out that you aren't in a crowd of horse-tranquilizer-snorting maniacs, and that “PCP” is the tongue-in-cheek acronym of this group of classically trained cellists.
But you'll wonder what kind of a crowd this is. In the course of one of PCP's epic 2-3 hour shows (the format of which is always a one-time affair the group writes almost entirely new arrangements for every performance cycle) you'll see such sights as: old ladies, straight out of the symphony hall nodding their head to cello hip-hop; young children playing air cello while dancing to 16 cellos accompanying The Builders and The Butchers; hipsters too-cool-for-school mesmerized by Arvo Paert; members of the Decemberists playing late 19th century Russian compositions transcribed for Hammond organ, a 40-piece choir, and of course: a symphony of cellos.
