King Juan Carlos Chair CRISTINA PATO | Culture and Social Responsibility in the Bach Project and Beyond
March 5 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
By invitation only
Yo-Yo Ma’s multi-faceted career is testament to his enduring belief in culture’s power to generate trust and understanding. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, collaborating with communities and institutions to explore culture’s role in society, or engaging unexpected musical forms, Yo-Yo strives to foster connections that stimulate the imagination and reinforce our humanity.
Cristina’s path as an artist, educator and cultural citizen has been deeply impacted by her work alongside Yo-Yo Ma and Silkroad during the last fourteen years.
In this event Cristina will engage Yo-Yo, the humanist, into a conversation about cultural collaboration, social responsibility and about the lessons learned throughout the process of creating and developing the groundbreaking Bach Project.
