With over 75 albums and 15 Grammys under his belt, Yo-Yo Ma is considered by many to be the best living cellist. Last Sunday, he graced the Bing Concert Hall with his presence. Accompanied by pianist Kathryn Stott, Yo-Yo Ma performed Stravinsky and Brahms, along with other composers’ pieces, to a crowd that included community members, professors, administrators and a sizable number of lucky Stanford students.
The University announced Tuesday the list of musical performers who will first grace Stanford’s Bing Concert Hall after it open its doors on Jan. 11, 2013. The San Francisco Symphony, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, Los Lobos and the St. Lawrence String Quartet will all play in a series of ticketed and free performances during the concert hall’s opening week, according to a University press release.
