Yo-Yo Ma comes to Ann Arbor for culture, understanding and survival / The Michigan Daily

Bookmark and Share

In the packed Hill Auditorium of about 3,500 students, staff and local Ann Arbor residents, Yo-Yo Ma walked out dressed in a black suit matched with a light pink tie. He looked to the crowd, glasses perched on the tip of his nose, standing adjacent to a $2.5 million dollar cello named "Petunia." At least he didn't leave it in a taxi this time, he joked. The world renowned cellist was not in Ann Arbor to play a Bach concert suit or to perform with the Silk Road Ensemble - he came to talk about culture, understanding and survival.
