BERKELEY, CA – “Cultural Citizens” Conference with Yo-Yo Ma
December 10, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Yo-Yo Ma will speak about cultural citizens and why culture matters in three lectures this December. In his talks and musical demonstrations, he will address the vital role of culture and the arts and sciences in our society and the ways in which each of us can come together to work as “cultural citizens.”
Joining Ma to help illustrate his example will be Cristina Pato, a virtuoso of the Galican bagpipes as well as an accomplished pianist and educator. As a star of Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, she is rapidly making a name for herself as an artist at home with jazz, classical and world music.
