SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. – The Arts Center at Lake Superior State University presents Take 3 — Together for the Holidays with soprano Lauren Jelencovich. Join us on December 3rd at 7 pm as we deck the halls with the sounds of Christmas and celebrate the musical delights of the holiday season.
Take 3 is the classically-inspired trio of Lindsay Deutsch (violinist), Lila Yang (cellist), and Irene Kim (pianist). These classical musicians have “rock-star charisma” and are known for their ability to captivate and excite audiences.
Lindsay Deutsch, is currently touring with Yanni and has also appeared as a guest soloist with American and Canadian symphonies. Her performance of Astor Piazzolla “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires” with the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra was selected for NPR’s Symphony Cast Program. Her movie credits include playing the violin solo for the movie soundtrack of The Good Shepherd starring Robert De Niro.
Lila Yang made her debut with the USC Orchestra at Colburn Zipper Hall in 2007 after receiving numerous awards and extensive training in chamber, orchestral, and solo repertoire. She later attended Juilliard and performed in a string trio that toured the world, giving masterclasses and fundraising concerts on behalf of the Peace Corps and the US Embassy in Costa Rica.
Irene Kim garnered the Franz Liszt First Prize in the Liszt-Garrison International Young Artist competition in addition to top prizes in the Carmel Music Society, Yale Gordon Concerto, and Russell C. Wonderlic competitions. She has subsequently performed at such notable venues as The Kennedy Center, Wilshire Ebell Theatre, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and the Library of Congress.
For our annual Christmas concert this year, Take 3 is joined by Yanni’s featured vocalist, Lauren Jelencovich, who has performed extensively in operas and musical theatre in the US and internationally. She made her Off-Broadway debut in the world premiere of The Music Teacher by Wallace and Allen Shawn and has since sung at Carnegie Hall in Benjamin Britten’s Te Deum in C with the Oratorio Society of New York as well as portrayed the role of Mrs. Nordstrom in A Little Night Music at the Opera Theatre of St. Louis. She has even been featured in People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” Issue.
These accomplished musicians will provide an exciting holiday program and family entertainment.
