PITTSBURGH – The general public can purchase tickets starting Monday, Nov. 7, for a special concert featuring world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma at Heinz Hall.
Mr. Ma will perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 6, in a concert led by Music Director Manfred Honeck.
The program includes Dvorák’s Concerto in B minor for Cello and Orchestra, and a suite from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker.
Arguably one of the most famous classical musicians, Mr. Ma played to a standing-room only audience at Heinz Hall in October 2010. He is a best-selling classical recording artist with a discography of more than 75 albums, including 15 Grammy Award-winners. He has been awarded the Avery Fisher Prize, Glenn Gould Prize, National Medal of Arts and the World Economic Forum’s Crystal Award. In January 2009, at President Obama’s invitation, Mr. Ma played in the quartet performance of John Williams’ Air and Simple Gifts at the 56th Inaugural Ceremony.
