Yo-Yo Ma • cello
We are thrilled to welcome the great Yo-Yo Ma to our gala program. A long-time friend of TMF, he will deliver a special performance via video. Among his many recent accomplishments is a CD of works by Beethoven with pianist Emanuel Ax.
Here is some of Yo-Yo Ma's signature wisdom:
"How wonderful it is that TMF is giving voice to artists whose voices were tragically silenced."
"Music, like all of culture, helps us to understand our environment, each other, and ourselves. Culture helps us to imagine a better future. Culture helps turn 'them' into 'us.' And these things have never been more important."
"Our cultural strength has always been derived from our diversity of understanding and experience."
