Grammy Award-winning duo Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott will perform for one night only at 8 p.m. April 26 at the IU Auditorium.
Cellist Ma and his longtime collaborator and pianist Stott will return to the IU Auditorium stage for the first time since 2010.
Their Bloomington performance will include music from a range of composers, featuring works of Antonín Dvorák, Astor Piazzolla, Felix Mendelssohn and Jean Sibelius, among others.
The world-renowned musicians Ma and Stott met in 1978 and started collaborating in 1985. Having performed together for more than 30 years, their collaborations include two Grammy Award-winning albums, “Obrigado Brazil” and “Obrigado Brazil — Live in Concert.” The duo’s most recent album is titled “Songs of Comfort and Hope.”
Ma and Stott aim to use their creativity and music to spark imagination and foster community connection, according to the IU Auditorium website.
Both have worked to bring artists together from around the world to share and create music. Ma has done so through his establishment of the musical collective Silkroad, and Stott through her work as the artistic director of the Australia Festival of Chamber Music.
Tickets for the show are on sale on IU Auditorium’s website. Per the request of the artists, all attendees must be masked during this event.
