An evening at Fallingwater with Grammy Award winner Mike Block features an eclectic mix of original compositions, songs, arrangements of traditional music and classical selections that draw inspiration from his diverse collaborations with artists such as cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Mark O’Connor, Indian tabla player Sandeep Das and pop stars such as will.i.am, Stevie Wonder and Bon Iver.

Mike Block is passionate about Frank Lloyd Wright, whose love of classical music is well known. Wright once said, “Never miss the idea that architecture and music belong together. They are practically one.”  This intimate concert is a unique opportunity to experience music and architecture as one in Wright's iconic living room at Fallingwater.
