Yo-Yo Ma, artistic director

This evening's eclectic performance marks the 15th anniversary of artistic director Yo-Yo Ma's internationally minded non-profit arts, cultural and educational organization The Silk Road Project, which presents performances by the critically-acclaimed Silk Road Ensemble. The iconic performance group is a collective of internationally-renowned performers and composers from more than 20 countries who collaborate on a diverse range of musical and multimedia projects. The 60-member globetrotting ensemble has performed in 105 cities, 30 countries and recorded five albums, with its most recent release Off the Map being nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Classical Crossover Album in 2011. Join us for an exhilarating celebration where "Classical music making rarely achieves this combination of spontaneity and superb craftsmanship" — The Washington Post.
