SAULT STE MARIE, MICH. - The Arts Center at Lake Superior State University presents Take 3, a classical-pop crossover group. Take 3 performs at the Arts Center April 9 at 7 p.m. Arts Center Director, Spencer Christensen, is excited to bring this exciting twist on classical music to the stage.

"These artists are taking modern, pop songs and playing them in ways you haven't heard. Music from Bruno Mars, Leonard Cohen, Hans Zimmer, Billy Joel and the Beatles will all be re-imagined!"

Comprised of Lindsay Deutsch (violin), Lila Yang (cello), and Christopher O’Riley (piano), Take 3 is taking everything you thought you knew about a classical music concert and throwing it out the window!

Christensen adds, "The pianist, Christopher O'Riley, is known to millions from his NPR show 'From the Top' and has performed with Yo-Yo Ma, Bobby McFerrin, Bela Fleck, and many more! It's going to be really special to have him here in the Sault.”

These three award winning musicians do adaptations of yesterday’s and today’s hits in a Classical-Pop crossover genre, bending all the rules.

Take 3 has toured around the world for years and members have appeared in major music venues such as Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Radio City Music Hall in New York, Venice Performing Arts Center, and the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.

"Take 3 is burning hot with passion, fashion, and excitement. A perfect assortment of the classics, pop culture, and virtuosity."  Bahman Saless, Conductor of the Boulder Chamber Orchestra.

The production was made possible with the generous support from the MICHIGAN COUNCIL FOR ARTS AND CULTURAL AFFAIRS, Fund for LSSU, and the Duncan MacLaren Family Fund for the Performing Arts.

Take 3 will be on the Arts Center Stage  at 7 p.m. April 9. Free parking is available in Lot K, in front of the Arts Center, and Lot E, behind the Cisler Center. The Arts Center is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free for LSSU students, $18 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for children 17 and under.
