Project Trio opens season at Antenna Cloud Farm

Beat-boxing flutist Greg Pattillo and Project Trio kick off the Antenna Cloud Farm season on Saturday, July 27.

Pattillo is recognized throughout the world for his redefinition of the flute sound and was lauded by The New York Times as “the best person in the world at what he does.” His groundbreaking performance videos on YouTube have been viewed more than 50 million times.

Project Trio combines “the virtuosity of world-class artists with the energy of rock stars, and is breaking down traditional ideas of chamber music,” according to a news release.

The farm property opens to the public at 4 p.m. for strolls and picnics. The house doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the concert starts at 6 p.m. It will be followed by a reception with goodies donated from Antenna Cloud's food sponsors: Jen's Bread at Everyday Farm, Upinngil Cheese, People's Pint, and Real Pickles.

On Friday, July 26, at 4 p.m., Project Trio will give a free interactive workshop and outreach performance for youths and families at The Brick House Community Resource Center in Turners Falls, Mass. This will be followed by an open mic session open to all youths and community members.

Appearing on The Boston Globe's 2019 Must-See list, Antenna Cloud Farm is a summer music festival, artists' retreat, and outreach organization located on a 100-acre hilltop former dairy farm in Gill. This year, it presents six world-class artists and ensembles that span a wide range of exciting musical styles.
