Provided by NSO
The third concert of the Newport Symphony Orchestra season presents the Portland Cello Project for the ensemble’s Newport premiere. Since the group’s inception, the Portland Cello Project has wowed audiences all over the country with extravagant performances, mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go. No two shows are alike, with a repertoire numbering over 900 pieces of music not normally performed by a cello or cello ensemble.
The Cello Project’s stage setup ranges from the very simple (4-6 cellos), to the very ambitious, with as many as 12 cellos playing with full choirs, winds, horns, and numerous percussion players. The concert will be held on Saturday, December 15 at 7:30 PM at the Newport Performing Arts Center on West Olive Street in Newport.
The Newport Symphony Orchestra will not be performing on December 15 but will return to perform an evening of operatic works on January 26 and 27 in Newport under the direction of Music Director Adam Flatt.
The Newport Symphony Orchestra is supported by the City of Newport, Coast Arts, and various foundations, businesses, and individual donors.
Tickets to the Newport concert are $34 and $20, and $10 for students. Call the Newport Performing Arts Center box office at 541-265-2787 for tickets.
