March 2, 2023 will mark a milestone in Sarasota Orchestra’s 75-year history, as classical music superstar Yo-Yo Ma joins our musicians for an unprecedented, one night only event. Yo-Yo Ma has been a cultural ambassador, performing with the world’s most celebrated artists and orchestras, as he has sought to use music to establish connections between people around the globe. Winner of 19 Grammy Awards as well as the Presidential Medal of Freedom, he joins Sarasota Orchestra in a celebration of the remarkable artistic growth of our orchestra, and its exceptional future potential. Be part of this special moment in Sarasota Orchestra history as one of our time’s most sought after musicians brings his special blend of artistry and humanitarianism to our community. The program opens with Dvořák’s joyous Slavonic Dances, followed by Yo-Yo Ma’s performance of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto. Do not miss this opportunity to spend an evening with one of classical music’s legends, and applaud your Sarasota Orchestra as it continues to bring world class music and musicians to our extraordinary community.
