Wednesday 11 July - Mike Block: New and Traditional music for Cello and Voice

Buy Tickets Online 

Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the "ideal musician of the 21st Century", Mike Block is a pioneering multi-genre cellist, composer, and educator living in New York City.  As singer and cellist, Block's solo performances draw on Rock, American folk music, Jazz, and Classical, featuring quirky, yet honest lyrics.  Block's virtuosic fusion of various styles was praised by the NY times as "vital, rich-hued solo playing".  

While still studying at the Juilliard School, Mike joined Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and shortly thereafter joined Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz Trio, which he played in for over three years.  In 2009, Mike founded the Mike Block String Camp in Vero Beach, Florida, and he is also the Artistic Director GALA Brooklyn: "Global Art - Local Art:", a music festival featuring a diverse array of musicians in unique collaborations.
