Muskegon, Michigan, September 17, 2021—On Friday, October 1 at 7:30 pm The Block will reopen to live audiences with the genre-defying string trio TAKE3. With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the group combines top pop hits, Americana, and classical with rock-star charisma. Known for their infectious and down to earth onstage personalities, TAKE3 is a rescheduled act originally slated for a 2020 appearance. They are eager to appear at The Block at last!
No strangers to the stage, TAKE3 has made an impact on the music scene as soloists, tours with major world-famous artists, recording tracks for film and television, and as soloists in front of symphony orchestras. From lush, gorgeous settings of music from Beethoven to Leonard Cohen to Luis Fonsi, mashups of unlikely pairings like Imagine Dragons and George Bizet, and arrangements of film music like Pirates of the Caribbean, Take3 makes it their mission to impart their love, passion and joy in music making to all who hear them.
TAKE3 includes violinist Lindsay Deutsch, pianist Jason Stoll, and cellist Mikala Schmitz. With her limitless enthusiasm and gifts as a performer and entertainer, Deutsch is a charismatic and captivating presence on today’s music scene. She is currently on a worldwide tour as a soloist with Yanni. Jason Stoll was a semi-finalist in the 2015 Dublin International Piano Competition and Finalist in the 2013 American Paderewski Piano Competition. From jazz and electronic to classical and baroque, Mikala Schmitz’s varied performance schedule includes appearances with the English rock group The Last Shadow Puppets and Tim Robbins’ Actors’ Gang.
