Awarded the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Kennedy Center honoree and 18-time Grammy®-winner Yo-Yo Ma has enthralled audiences worldwide on stage, recordings, film and television.
His debut with the Tucson Symphony in December, 2009 was sold-out. “With nuance, warmth, Ma does great show with the TSO,” stated the headline in the Arizona Daily Star. He “produced a luxuriant tone that resonated throughout the hall,” the review continued. “He is called the greatest living classical musician for a reason. He is a cellist whose energetic, inspired technical skills mesmerize from the first stroke.”
Yo-Yo Ma will perform Edward Elgar’s beloved Cello Concerto with the TSO on a program that will open with Rossini’s Overture to William Tell and include other selections by Delius and Nicolai.
