The Genre Smashing Trio Where Bach and Bieber Collide…
Born out of the practice room s of Julliard and the Colburn School, TAKE3 lives at the intersection where Pop, Classical, and American Roots collide.
With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the genre-defying trio, TAKE3, brings the refinement of a rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Trained at the world’s top conservatories, TAKE3 has expanded their repertoire from Bach and Beethoven to Bieber and The Beach Boys. Known for their infectious and down to earth onstage personalities, this threesome leaves their indelible mark on captivated crowds around the country performing their arrangements of top pop hits, Americana, and classical favorites. Although only in their 4th touring season, the trio already has an impressive touring history, visiting PACs and performing with orchestra in most of the 50 states and appearing in 60 performances around the globe each season.
TAKE3’s interactive lighting shows, comedic stories of their journey from basement practice rooms at classical conservatories, to packed stadiums playing music far from the Beethoven they grew up with, come together in unforgettable experiences that have fired up concert goers all over the nation.
TAKE3 offers shows with dancers, full orchestra, small backup band, as well as trio only. In addition to extensive touring, the group has earned accolades for its outreach programs for children of all ages, delivering a message of hope, inspiration, and the importance of following dreams with vigorous tenacity.
