Internationally known cellist Yo-Yo Ma will visit Braddock next month as part of a Kennedy Center for the Arts program highlighting artistic communities across the country. The "Arts Across America" program highlights everyday cities and towns that use the arts to promote connections and their creative economies, said Kennedy Center spokeswoman Brittany Laeger. It will come to Braddock June 8. "The events are tailored to each community, and local leaders partner with Kennedy Center staff to design a day of activities aligned to the community's cultural landscape and goals," she said. A schedule has not yet been set for the Braddock visit, but will include visits to local arts programs, performances, a community conversation and community-based art activities, she said.
