Yo-Yo Ma & Kathryn Stott: "Songs of Comfort and Hope"
About this event
Playing live from Taiwan, Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott share songs of comfort and hope, bringing together traditional and new takes on familiar works from Europe, Asia and the Americas to offer solace and connection in a time of anxiety and isolation.
"Songs," the artists write, "are little time capsules of emotions in which connections intertwine with long-lost dreams and desires, feelings of great spirit, optimism and unity. Songs bring a sense of community, identity and purpose, transcending boundaries and binding us together in thanks, consolation and encouragement."
The program will include selections from the forthcoming album of the same title, to be released on December 11.
