Houston Symphony Offers Onstage Seating for Sold-Out Yo-Yo Ma Concert
Led by Music Director Andrés Orozco-Estrada, the program includes Dvorák's Cello Concerto, a masterpiece written during the time the composer spent in America, and Gershwin's jazz-influenced An American in Paris.
Yo-Yo Ma is known worldwide as a soloist and chamber music aficionado, as well as a dedicated philanthropist. He devotes much of his time to Silkroad, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create meaningful change in arts, education and business, which he founded in 1998. He has recorded more than 100 albums and remains one of the best-selling recording artists of the classical genre.
