Houston Symphony presents Yo-Yo Ma
The Houston Symphony will welcome superstar cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who will perform Dvorák’s powerful Cello Concerto, a masterpiece written during the time the composer spent in America. Gershwin’s jazz-influenced American in Paris will also be on the program.
Yo-Yo Ma is known worldwide as a soloist and chamber music aficionado. In addition to his performances, he dedicates much of his time to Silkroad, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create meaningful change in arts, education and business, which he founded in 1998. He has recorded more than 100 albums and remains one of the best-selling recording artists of the classical genre.
