Houston Symphony Presents Yo-Yo Ma for One Night Performance, Today
The Houston Symphony announced Monday that concert tickets for Yo-Yo Ma are now on sale to the general public. Globally famous, the superstar cellist will join the orchestra and Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017 at Jones Hall. Ma 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.
