Overview

Expect an evening of unique renditions of classic Radiohead pieces that wander from truly epic to breathtakingly intimate when Portland’s premiere alt-classical group brings a huge orchestral ensemble (including brass, percussion, and guest vocals by Patti King of the Portland band The Shins) to perform a night in homage to Radiohead.

Labeled by Rolling Stone as "stunning art-rock tour de force," “OK Computer” is a historic Radiohead album that has proven over the years to yield an infinite variety of artistic inspiration to people of all walks of life. Cello Project first performed the record in its entirety in 2012 for the 15th anniversary of the album’s release, and ever since then, pieces of it have remained in the group’s repertoire as constantly evolving musical meditations.

All of the cellists in the group are classically trained, and yet, all of them seem to find a unique connection between Radiohead and their musical foundation. Beyond that, each of the cellists have worked to bring out subtleties they discover that hint at everything from Bach counterpoint at times, to rhythms created by Stravinsky.
