Portland’s premiere alt-classical group brings a huge, orchestral ensemble (including brass, percussion, and guest vocals by Patti King of the Portland band The Shins) to perform a night in homage to Radiohead. Expect an evening of unique renditions of classical Radiohead pieces that wander from truly epic to breathtakingly intimate.

OK Computer is a historic album that has proven over the years to yield an infinite variety of artistic inspiration to people of all walks of life. Cello Project first performed the record in its entirety in 2012 for the 15th anniversary of the album’s release, and ever since then, pieces of it have remained in the group’s repertoire as constantly evolving musical meditations.

All of the cellists in the group are classically trained, and yet, all of them seem to find a unique connection between Radiohead and their musical foundation. The deep layers of sonic ecstasy are reminiscent to all of so much late-19th-century music of the Western Classical Tradition, but beyond that, each of the cellists have worked to bring out subtleties they discover that hint at everything from Bach counterpoint at times, to rhythms they initially learned counting and performing Stravinsky.

“The artistic destinies of the equally unorthodox “OK Computer” and Portland Cello Project were meant to coincide…every piece is treated with equal sincerity, and arranged not just to invoke the original but deconstruct and re-imagine its essence.” –Tom Keogh. Seattle Times.

“This from someone who loves OK Computer to an unhealthy degree, from someone who’s listened to that album so many times that it should hold absolutely no surprises -— tonight’s show was about 10 kinds of amazing. Haunting and vibrant and funny and jarring, lush and majestic and clever. In conclusion, your show was fantastic.” —Erik Henriksen. The Portland Mercury.

We are proud to welcome all types of concerts to our stage.  Occasionally during a performance, audience members will show their enthusiasm by standing and dancing, especially when encouraged by the performers to do so. Unless directed by the show, we do not enforce a “must-sit” policy at concerts. For most concerts this would not be acceptable to the performers on stage who often love it when the crowd is moved enough by the performance to stand. This is especially true for rock shows and for seats closest to the stage.

We do not have a “no standing” policy and, in most situations, will allow guests to stand even if they block the view of the stage for other guests. If your view is ever blocked by a standing or dancing guest, please contact an usher and we’ll attempt to find alternative seating.

Processing and convenience fees are standard in the performing arts industry, but since the Capitol Center for the Arts handles ticket sales independently, our fees are much lower than the average fee you’ll find with theatres using third party ticketing companies. A variable per ticket convenience fee will be added to every order purchased online or by phone. You are not charged this per ticket fee when purchasing in person at the Box Office. These fees help to cover the cost of operating the theatre, as well as administrative and box office staffing, credit card fees charged by merchant services, ticketing software, 24/7 ordering via our website, postage, computer and telephone systems, utilities and supplies.

Refunds or exchanges are not permitted for any tickets purchased unless the show cancels. Please do not purchase a ticket unless you are sure that you can attend.  Members of the Capitol Center for the Arts may exchange tickets for credit toward future events.  Tickets must be presented to the box office during business hours at least 24 hours prior to the event. Tickets that are part of a VIP, Meet and Greet, or group/subscription discount package may not be eligible for ticket insurance.
