CCM welcomes pioneering multi-style cellist, composer and music educator Mike Block for two days of learning and creative music-making on April 8 and 9.
Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the “ideal musician of the 21st century,” Block studied at the Juilliard School where he joined Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, and soon after Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio, which he played in for over three years.
Block will give a workshop geared toward teaching creativity to string students from 7 – 9 p.m. on Tuesday, April 8. High school and collegiate students are also welcome to attend this session.
Beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 9, Block will host master classes and workshops, which will run through 6 p.m. A concert and reception will follow from 7:30 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
All events at CCM are free and open to the public and take place in room 300 of the Dieterle Vocal Arts Center in CCM Village, unless otherwise noted.
Area teachers and students are encouraged to sign up for any and all events by emailing Professor BettyAnne Gottlieb at firstname.lastname@example.org.
