In the beginning, people referred to Project as the group with the beat-boxing flute. But Project's string bass player, Peter Seymour, sees it a bit differently, in broader terms. Seymour says Project is the embodiment of the contemporary chamber music ensemble, except this breed of musicians -- bassist Seymour, flutist Greg Pattillo and cellist Eric Stephenson -- have expanded on this concept of classical music. Hence the beat-boxing flute, a tenet of "classical" hip-hop.

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - Why go to a chamber music concert? Because there is no comparison between listening to recorded classical music and hearing and seeing a live concert performance, say members of a Morgan County-based ensemble. The Warm Springs Chamber Ensemble, comprised of Berkeley Springs residents Heather Worley, Linda Whitesitt and Patricia Stringer, recently performed some of the most beautiful chamber music ever written for string instruments and piano. Chamber music is a form of classical music performed in an intimate atmosphere, which gained popularity in the 1800s.

Q: How long have you been playing the violin? When did you start? Why? A: I've been playing since I was 6. My mother started me on the violin. I didn't want to play the violin; I thought it was a really girly instrument.

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - It seemed only fitting that British guitarist Adrian Legg took the phone call for this interview from a Chicago hotel room. It was even more fitting that at the time of the call, he said he was in the middle of writing in his journal about last night's gig gone wrong. In fact, he compared the Chicago venue from the night before with some of the seedy Irish pubs he's played in. "Except there wasn't any blood at this one," Legg said, laughing. Hopefully, he will have better luck in West Virginia this weekend.
