MACC announces ‘An Evening with Yo-Yo Ma’
KAHULUI – The Maui Arts & Cultural Center announced that cellist Yo-Yo Ma will perform in the Castle Theater on Thursday, Jan. 22, at 7:30 p.m. This concert, “An Evening with Yo-Yo Ma,” is his only Hawaii performance slated at this time.
Yo-Yo Ma is widely known as one the finest cellists of this generation, and a musician of unusually broad appeal. He has received numerous prestigious music awards and played as a soloist with most major orchestras to universal critical acclaim and the love of listeners around the world – even outside the classical music domain.
His 90 albums have received 17 Grammy Awards. In addition to recordings of the standard classical repertoire, he has recorded bluegrass music, traditional Chinese melodies, Argentinian tangos and Brazilian music, and has collaborated with a spectrum of popular musicians.
His fine musicianship and intellectually rigorous analysis of the music have earned him the respect of his peers, but Yo-Yo Ma’s adventurous, eclectic repertoire, inquiring nature and friendly stage personality have also earned him great success with audiences everywhere.
Tickets for this once-in-a-lifetime concert on Maui are $12, $55, $90, $150 or $250, available by calling 242-SHOW or visiting www.MauiArts.org.
