About The Event

With a flair for the wild and unexpected, the genre-defying TAKE3 trio takes the refinement of a rigorous classical music background and infuses it with rock-star charisma. Blending violin, piano, cello, and vocals in creative arrangements, TAKE3 tours nationwide to more than 50 cities each season, and can also be heard throughout the popular Netflix series, The Witcher.  TAKE3 concerts feature top Pop hits, Americana, Oldies, and Classical music favorites, with intricate mash-ups of modern and familiar pieces. Known for their infectious, down- to-earth onstage personalities, TAKE3 musicians use their artistry as a conduit for storytelling and share their joy in music-making with all who hear them.

"TAKE3 is burning hot with Passion, Fashion, and Excitement. A perfect assortment of the classics, pop culture and virtuosity."  —Bahman Saless,  Boulder Chamber Orchestra, Boulder, CO

About TAKE3

An exciting crossover Trio of strings, piano, vocals, and percussion, TAKE3 is known for its eclectic programming - from Oldies like Billy Joel and The Beatles, to popular TV and movie hits such as Game of Thrones and Pirates of the Caribbean, to chart-topping pop hits by Imagine Dragons and Coldplay. Trained at the world’s top conservatories, the TAKE3 musicians enjoy getting back to their roots of classical programming and take pride in making this music accessible to audiences.

Led by Yanni's star violin soloist, Lindsay Deutsch, along with cellist Mikala Schmitz, and pianist Jason Stoll, the TAKE3 artists  are much more than great entertainers; together, they emit deep expression through their performances and connect emotionally with their audiences on a human level.

Lindsay Deutsch - Violin/Vocals

With her limitless enthusiasm, gifted performer/entertainer, violinist Lindsay Deutsch, is a charismatic and captivating presence on today’s music scene. She has thrilled audiences world-wide with her passion for music and brilliant display of technique and musicianship. Lindsay is a much sought-after soloist and entertainer, who tours internationally as solo violinist with Yanni. Maestro Jung-Ho Pak, conductor and artistic director of the Cape Symphony Orchestra, says of Lindsay, “A conductor dreams about finding a soloist who understands the essential responsibility of helping change a large community’s view of classical music. In a time when every concert has to be unforgettable and a game changer, Lindsay can make that happen every time."

Lindsay Deutsch performs on an 1845 Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin. She frequently appears as guest soloist with American and Canadian symphonies. Her performance of Astor Piazzolla’s “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Jeffrey Kahane, was selected for NPR’s Symphony Cast Program. Her movie credits include playing the solo violin soundtrack for the movie, “The Good Shepherd” starring Robert De Niro.

Mikala Schmitz - Cello

Los Angeles- based cellist Mikala Schmitz,  an avid performer, often finds herself crossing over into a variety of musical genres. From jazz and electronic to classical and baroque, Mikala continues to find new and fascinating collaborative avenues. Mikala's work with the English rock group The Last Shadow Puppets took her all over Europe, and you can hear her on their EP Dream Synopsis. Her music can be heard on television shows such as Netflix's Chef's Table and HBO's The Brink. She also tours with Tim Robbins’ acting troupe, The Actors’ Gang, with their production of The New Colossus, an original one-act play, with original music by Ms. Schmitz and David Robbins.

Jason Stoll - Piano

Southern Californian pianist, Jason Stoll, has garnered many praises and awards for his performances throughout his career. He has competed internationally and was named a Semi-finalist in the 2015 Dublin International Piano Competition and Finalist in the 2013 American Paderewski Piano Competition. A dedicated educator, Jason served on the faculty of the Bronx Conservatory of Music for three years. When he is not touring as a soloist and a member of the TAKE3 trio, Jason Stoll now adjudicates and teaches master classes throughout the Los Angeles area, and serves as a piano instructor and lecturer at California State University, Northridge.
