Mike Block

Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the “ideal musician of the 21st Century”, Mike Block is a multi-style cellist and composer. Do not miss this amazing solo performance by the Silk Road Ensemble cellist and Berklee College of Music professor, Mike Block.

Musical selections include classical Bach Suites he learned while studying at Juilliard School, Arabic melodies and improvisations he learned as a member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, arrangements of American folk songs he encountered while touring with Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio, and original songs that are born with a fresh contemporary pop influence.

Block will expand your conception of what is possible with the cello, as he attempts to connect the world’s cultures through music.
