A Night with Cellist Mike Block

MikeBlockMike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist, composer, and educator. His one-man show, singing and playing the cello, is a special experience. After becoming one of the first wave of cellists to adopt a strap in order to stand while playing, Mike was the first standing cellist to perform at Carnegie Hall, which the NY Times called "Breathless ... Half dance, half dare."


Wednesday, March 23rd at 7PM in the Assembly Room
