The trio met in 1996 while studying at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Seymour and Stephenson came up with the idea to form a classical chamber music group that is different from conventional classical and carries elements of jazz and rock. With Pattillo joining in, the ensemble became complete and together the three band mates began performing in schools and other venues. In 2007, Pattillo uploaded a video on YouTube which earned him immense recognition and appreciation for his distinct blend of flute and beat box. Seymour, who at that point of time was playing for the Cleveland Orchestra, soon moved to New York to join Pattillo and Stephenson.
