On Sunday, November 5, 2017, classical crossover trio Simply Three visited Louisville for a workshop and performance at The Kentucky Center.
Simply Three is known for original compositions and classical arrangements of Top 40 songs accompanied by choreographed video effects not often utilized by other string ensembles.
Meeting with violin students from Mr. Keith Cook's classes - part of The Kentucky Center ArtsReach Violin Studio program - Simply Three members Glen McDaniel (violin), Nick Villalobos (bass), and Zack Clark (cello) discussed their musical journeys, which began with learning the foundation of classical music.
The trio then worked with Mr. Cook's instrumentalists on various technique drills to help build their playing prowess and individual style. The students also enjoyed dinner at the Center and attended Simply Three's performance as part of The Kentucky Center K-Card program.
