The Program

The program, put on by Music Worcester, is called "Culture, Understanding, and Survival - Six Decades with Bach.”

It will feature a performance of Johann Sebastian Bach's Suites for Solo Cello No.’s III and VI by Yo-Yo Ma.

It will be an example of culture's power to create moments of shared understanding, as well as an invitation to a larger conversation about culture, society, and the themes that connect us all.

Yo-Yo Ma

Ma has recorded more than 90 albums and received 18 Grammy Awards.

Along with his recordings of the standard classical repertoire, he has recorded a wide variety of folk music such as American bluegrass music, traditional Chinese melodies, the tangos of Argentinian composer Ástor Piazzolla, and Brazilian music.

He has collaborated with artists including jazz singer Bobby McFerrin, guitarist Carlos Santana, and singer-songwriter and guitarist James Taylor.

He has been a United Nations Messenger of Peace since 2006 and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 2001, Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011, and Polar Music Prize in 2012.
