Tarina Westlund

On today’s edition of Binah, the Portland Cello Project performs Radiohead’s now classic dystopian opus OK Computer.

Hear the Portland Cello Project today at noon, here on KALW 91.7 FM.Equally at home in punk rock clubs and symphony halls, the Portland Cello Project is an alt-classical ensemble known for pushing the boundaries of the classical cello tradition. With an expansive repertoire ranging from Bach to Jay-Z, the group has built a reputation of mixing genres, blurring musical lines and challenging perceptions wherever they go.

The Portland Cello Project is led by artistic director and principle arranger Douglas Jenkins.

Joining them is guest vocalist Patti King of the indie rock band The Shins.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
