Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the "ideal musician of the 21st Century", Mike Block is a pioneering multi-genre cellist, composer, and educator living in New York City. Mike's personal projects include the Mike Block Band and the Triborough Trio. The Band features Mike as singer, cellist and composer, in a mixture of original songs and instrumentals drawing upon multiple genres. The Trio features unique arrangements of traditional and contemporary music from around the world. Mike is also the Artistic Director and host of GALA NYC: "Global Art - Local Audience:", a concert series held at the Brooklyn Lyceum featuring a diverse array of musicians and artists in unique collaborations.
While still studying at the Juilliard School, Mike joined Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and shortly thereafter joined Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz Trio, which he played in for over three years. Mike has also toured extensively with Darol Anger's Republic of Strings, The Absolute Ensemble, Sirius String Quartet, and The Knights
