PROJECT Trio Addresses Graduates
Alumni ensemble PROJECT Trio addressed the CIM graduating class with the same high-energy enthusiasm that they bring to all their concerts. Although the ensemble was touring Russia at the time of CIM's 2013 Commencement ceremonies, they recorded a special video for graduates and guests.
Members of the composer/performer ensemble Eric Stephenson (cello, BM '00, MM '02), Greg Pattillo (flute, MM '01) and Peter Seymour (bass, BM '00) were named Alumni Achievement Award recipients at this year's ceremonies. They are known for pushing the boundaries of classical music with a fusion of jazz, hip-hop and rock.
