Yo Yo Ma - Bach Cello Concerto 14.9.20

New beginnings

Bach cello suite number 1 played by Yo Yo Ma. This video shows how people have different ways of expressing themselves through culture and the arts and how it can bring the world together and unite us. (In lockdown the choirs, football teams, dancing groups etc were all removed from our lives but it is these experiences which we need to find a way to build back up to enhance our lives). 


Yo-Yo Ma (born October 7, 1955) is an American cellist. Born in Paris, France to Chinese parents and educated in New York City, United States, Ma was a child prodigy, performing from the age of four and a half. He graduated from The Juilliard School and Harvard University, and has performed as a soloist with orchestras around the world. He has recorded more than 90 albums and received 18 Grammy Awards.
