A group garnering 80 million views on YouTube joins top youth musicians
Virtuosic trio and YouTube sensation, PROJECT Trio, teams up with the exceptional youth musicians of Empire State Youth Orchestras Repertory and String Orchestras. See how the dynamic chamber trio plays off the strength of two different full orchestras in a night of music that crosses genres and generations.
Bursting onto the scene with their landmark videos, right out of the internet generation, PROJECT Trio is a musical experience defining a new level of entertainment. By joining forces with some of the region’s top youth musicians, they will provide an evening of rousing music, including performances by the trio’s beatboxing flutist, dubbed by the New York Times as “the best in the world at what he does.”
The Trio was forged out of a collective desire to draw new and diverse audiences by performing high energy, top quality music. Using social media to broaden their reach beyond the concert stage and classroom, the Trio has its own YouTube channel, which has over 80 million views and 96,000 subscribers, making PROJECT Trio one of the most watched instrumental ensembles on the internet. They are a group to see to believe.
