Returning to Memorial Hall, the treasured Silk Road Ensemble with cello superstar Yo-Yo Ma draws together intriguing performers and composers from more than 20 countries in Asia, Europe and the Americas. Vigorously exploring each other’s traditions and celebrating the multiplicity of approaches to music from around the world, instrumental and vocal artists of almost unimaginable virtuosity delve into a cornucopia of musical ideas. With high-energy performances rooted in Eastern and Western traditions, they develop repertoire that responds to the multicultural reality of our global society. Described by The Boston Globe as “a kind of roving musical laboratory without walls,” this stellar collective receives critical and popular raves.
Classical music performances are made possible by The William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. We thank the Trustees for their visionary generosity.
