The genre-bending trio Take3 – lauded as “one of the best new trios in the music business today” – performs Nov. 8 at the Ellen Theatre in Bozeman and Nov. 9 at the O’Shaughnessy Center in Whitefish.
With a flair for the wild and unexpected, Take3 brings the refinement of a rigorous classical background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Known for their infectious and down-to-earth onstage personalities, the group’s three members have left an indelible mark on captivated crowds around the country with their arrangements of top pop hits, jazz, movie themes, Americana and classical favorites. Their pieces range from Beethoven to the Beatles, Bizet to Imagine Dragons, Leonard Cohen to Stevie Wonder, and more.
Bahman Saless, conductor of the Boulder Chamber Orchestra, writes that the trio “is burning hot with passion, fashion and excitement. A perfect assortment of the classics, pop culture and virtuosity!”
Bursting onto the music scene a few years ago, the trio has already performed in most of the 50 states, including shows at several renowned venues and performances in conjunction with several world-class symphonies. Trained at the Colburn and Juilliard Schools, members include violinist Lindsay Deutsch, a much sought-after soloist who is presently touring with Yanni; pianist Van-Anh Nguyen, a worldwide sensation and in-demand artist who plays to sold-out shows around the globe; and cellist Lila Yang, an award-winning musician who tours internationally in solo, chamber and orchestra ensembles.
All three members of Take3 are “consummate professionals who not only are incredibly warm and personable but put on an amazing show,” says Yasuko Taoka, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities at Wayne State University.
