Yo Yo Ma Coming to Boston - 5/18

5/02/2008 11:16:00 AM
Yo Yo Ma is one of the performers that is on my list to one day see live. Secret fact about me - I played the cello for seven years prior to coming to Boston for school. I figured a cello in a frat house wouldn't survive very long - so it'd be better to leave it at home.

Sadly, I don't think I'll be in town the weekend that he's in Boston. This isn't Mr. Ma's first time in Boston, I think he comes through every couple of years to perform at Symphony Hall. It just always seems to be bad timing for me.

For those of you that are available on Sunday 5/18 - I'd highly recommend going to this concert to hear him play. I've got several of his CDs (the one where he plays the music of Ennio Morricone is my favorite) and they're all wonderful. Try listening to them on your 5.1 surround sound system or a pair of those Bose Quietcomfort headphones - it's pretty awe-inspiring.

According to the BSO website, the 5/18 event is the 50th Anniversary Gala of the BYSO (Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra) and they're going to be playing Dvorak.

    Hi Philip and Anonymous
    Thanks for the note. I had no clue he lived here! That's really cool. I just wikipedia'ed him and sure enough he lives in Cambridge.
