José Luis Gomez, conductor
Yo-Yo Ma, cello

Reigning cello virtuoso Yo-Yo Ma performs with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra for the first time since 2009.

Awarded the National Medal of Arts and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Kennedy Center honoree and 18-time Grammy®-winning performer has enthralled audiences worldwide on stage, recordings, film and television.

Don’t miss your chance to see and hear this unforgettable one night only performance!

“Coming up with new superlatives for Ma at this point may seem like an exercise in futility, but because the cellist never gives a routine performance of anything, there is always something different to appreciate. Here one could marvel at how he could in an instant change the texture, phrasing, and vibrato of a single note, and with it the music’s entire dramatic trajectory. Ma’s sense of when to take the spotlight, when to lay back, and when to play just above silence is unmatched.”
— Boston Globe, October 21, 2016
