Portland Cello Project Holiday Show

Rocking in a winter wonderland

Dec. 1 & 2, 2023

7:30pm // Discovery Theatre

Sponsored By: Alaska Airlines

Portland Cello Project, known for their delightfully dedicated performances of both modern and classical music (and everything in between), invite Saeeda Wright on stage with them to bring a complement of unexpected classical jams to the holiday stage. Expect uniquely jazzy takes on holiday classics, to standards bridged with Hannukah medleys, and hidden gem classical pieces. 

Just try to be a scrooge at this concert. We dare you. There’s something for everyone, and all the gifts are tied together by the cello in the unique ways that have made The Cello Project a perennial favorite over the last decade.  

This year, they’re ringing in the yule Alaska-style, featuring local guest artists Chris Hawk, Ashley Young, East High School Swing Choir, Fiona Rose, The Forrest That Never Sleeps, and the Community Gospel Ensemble for this unique twist on the traditional holiday concert – one part variety show, one part homage to the season, one part freewheeling spectacle. 

Gather with friends and neighbors in your best ugly sweater as Portland Cello Project lights up the dark December nights and lifts your spirits.
