Omaha – On Saturday, April 19, acclaimed chamber ensemble PROJECT Trio will bring their blend of classical training and modern style to UNO’s Strauss Performing Arts Center for a special live performance.
Combining the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, PROJECT Trio is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music and making it more accessible to today's listeners.
The group was forged out of a collective desire to draw new and diverse audiences. Through clever use of social media, they have been able to broaden their reach beyond the stage and classroom. PROJECT Trio has its own YouTube channel with more than 79 million views and 93,000 subscribers.
The performance will follow a day-long chamber music clinic for middle, high school and college students. Some attendees will get the opportunity to work directly with and receive coaching from the group during the clinic.
“PROJECT Trio makes chamber music exciting and refreshing for a younger and more diverse demographic,” says Stacie Haneline, instructor of music at UNO and organizer of the clinic. “We are pleased to give students the chance to work directly with this group, as well as to bring their fantastic live show to Omaha.”
Tickets are free for UNO students using their MavCards, $10 for general public and $4 for seniors. Tickets go on sale at the door at 7 p.m. and the performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
