Renowned trio "TAKE3" opens Fallbrook Music Society's 45th season

FALLBROOK – The genre-bending trio TAKE3 – lauded as "one of the best new trios in the music business today" – opens Fallbrook Music Society's 45th concert season Sunday, Aug. 21 at 2 p.m. Although the group is only in its fourth touring season, it has already performed with orchestras in most of the 50 states and will appear in more than 60 performances around the globe this coming season.

With a flair for the wild and unexpected, TAKE3 (violin, piano, cello) brings the refinement of a rigorous classical background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Trained at the world's top conservatories such as Colburn and Juilliard, TAKE3 has expanded their repertoire from Beethoven to the Beatles, Leonard Cohen to Willie Nelson, and more. With a perfect assortment of the classics, pop culture and virtuosity, this threesome leaves an indelible mark on captivated audiences around the country.

"We anticipate a large audience for this unique performance," said Bob Freaney, president of Fallbrook Music Society. "Members of the trio are known for their unmistakable style, their joy in music-making, and their down-to-earth onstage personalities – our audience can expect a brilliant display of technique and musicianship for our 45th Season Opener," he added.

TAKE3 was created by violinist/vocalist Lindsay Deutsch, Yanni's violin soloist, with whom she has traveled most of the seven continents. Deutsch can be heard throughout Netflix's popular show, "The Witcher" and the Hulu series "All About Pam." Her performances on these Sony soundtracks reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and received millions of streams worldwide.

Hailed by San Francisco's Civic Center for her ".... professional and highest caliber of playing," Los Angeles-based cellist Mikala Schmitz is an avid performer of many different styles of cello playing. She continues to find herself crossing over into a variety of musical genres from Americana folk, to classical, jazz, electronic and baroque with new and fascinating collaborative avenues.

The third member of the trio, pianist Anton Smirnov began his piano playing at the age of 7 in Russia. He received his artist diploma from Oberlin Conservatory, his master's degree in piano performance from Yale, and has performed world-wide at venues that include Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center's Avery Fischer Hall, Walt Disney Hall, and Metropolitan Museum of Art.

This instrumental feast will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21, in Fallbrook's historic Mission Theater, 231 N. Main Ave. Concert hall doors open at 1:30, and the concert begins at 2 p.m. And the best news of all – this concert is free admission.
