He is, as the Washington Post’s Anne Midgette put it in 2011, “the best-known, most versatile, most engaged, music soloist in this country and perhaps in the world.”A joyous presence in the American cultural landscape for more than three decades, Yo-Yo Ma stands as our country’s cellist-in-chief as well as the music world’s most enthusiastic teacher. His tone is luminous, his reach ambitious, his passion for music infectious. As an appointed United Nations Messenger of Peace, he has organized teaching and mentoring programs, inspiring students across the world to love and honor music. His own collaborations go well beyond the traditional boundaries of classical music – notably with his Silk Road Project – celebrating the universality of music itself.

This will be a solo recital.
