About Mike

Mike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist and composer, who first joined Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble while still studying at the Juilliard School, where he later earned his Master's Degree. Known for the unorthodox style of playing cello while standing up, Mike was the first standing cellist to perform at Carnegie Hall, and has since appeared on TV shows that include "Late Night with Conan O’Brian", "Regis and Kelly", NBC’s 30 Rock, and the CBS "Early Show". He has served as music director for musicians as diverse as Yo-Yo Ma, Bobby McFerrin, Marcus Printup, and Damian Woetzel (Principal at NYC Ballet) among others. He's also performed and recorded with a wide range of musicians including Stevie Wonder, Allison Krauss, Edgar Meyer, Mark O’Connor, Mike Marshall, Darol Anger, Zakir Hussain, Tim O’Brien, Lenny Kravitz, Shakira, and many others. Mike has also released several albums of original material that showcase his virtuoso cello playing and diverse interests in music.
