    If you ever thought cello music was too high-brow, or even boring, you’ll be in for a shock when the Portland Cello Project comes to the Florence Events Center on Saturday, November 22 at 7:00 p.m. There will be a pre-concert talk with the group at 6:15.

    The group boasts a repertoire of more than 800 pieces of music not normally heard from a cello—folk, rock, classical, jazz, and more. The group has built a reputation mixing genres and blurring musical lines and perceptions wherever they go.

    Spacelab Magazine calls them “A group of cello-wielding maniacs.” MTV.com says “It doesn't get much more genre-crossing than this.” Audiences of all ages and tastes always want more.

    “Quirky, edgy, fun, with no two shows ever alike; that’s the Portland Cello Project.,” says SEAcoast board president Ernie Doud. “They are unpredictable and never fail to amaze. They can bring a stage setup ranging from simple (4-6 cellos) to the all-out epic, which has included 12 cellos accompanied by full orchestras. Florence will likely see something in between.”

    The Festival of Trees “Gala of Giving” ticketed event will take place on Sunday from 4 to 6 p.m., featuring appetizers and champagne. There will be up to seven “trees of giving” that will be live auctioned by former Mayor Phil Brubaker.

    Each tree will be underwritten by one of the event's major sponsors, which include, Beachcomber Pub & Grill, KCST Coast Radio, TR Hunter Real Estate, State Farm Insurance, and the Florence Rotary Club. Sponsors will be decorating the trees, as well as providing gifts to go under each tree. The gifts under the tree will go to the charity of the buyer's choice, and the tree can be kept by the buyer or given to the charity. Teams of buyers are welcome to join forces to purchase one of the trees.

    All proceeds from the event will benefit the Military Heritage Museum.
