Yo-Yo Ma Tickets
Yo-Yo Ma TicketsYo-Yo Ma has stood the test of time as one of the world’s most preeminent cello players. He has astounded audiences around the world, played for presidents and world leaders and been a cultural ambassador. Though he is an icon of classical music, his eclectic career spans many different genres, from bluegrass to traditional Chinese music. With his crossover appeal, he has collaborated with James Taylor, Carlos Santana and Bobby McFerrin. His instrument of choice is a Montagnana cello from 1733 nicknamed Petunia, along with a 1712 Stradivarius and a 2003 Moes and Moes cello.

After being identified early as a child prodigy, he moved to the United States with his family.

Introduced by Leonard Bernstein, he played the cello with a mastery that belied his age in front of an audience that included Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Robert Frost and Bob Newhart. Yo-Yo Ma obtained his education from the Juilliard School of performing arts and then Harvard University. Throughout his prodigious career, he has recorded more than 100 albums of classic and new music. He has contributed to the soundtracks of Seven Years in Tibet, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Memoirs of Geisha and Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. He has also created his own collaborative art program known as the Silk Road Ensemble. In recognition of the quality of his work, Yo-Yo Ma has received 18 Grammy Awards out of a staggering 27 nominations. Befitting his eclectic style, he has won for Best Folk Album, Best World Album, Best Classical Crossover Album, Best Instrumental Soloist Performance, Best Chamber Music Performance, Best Classical Performance and more.
