The Portland Cello Project is gearing up for a big show marking, Winter, a new, seven-song EP with selections by Benjamin Britten, Seattle alt-rockers Fleet Foxes, as well as traditional songs.

The group formed with the intention of taking music to places where cellos aren't normally heard. But Jenkins says they're all excited about making a seasonal return to the concert hall.

The show, to be staged next weekend in Portland, unites a diverse range of artists, from the Oregon Symphony’s Nancy Ives to Americana legend Howe Gelb, to Oregon’s own Laura Gibson and Laura Viers (we think this might be the first time they’ll share a stage).

PCP Founder Doug Jenkins sat down with April to talk about the EP, the show, and the creative promise of wintertime.
