World-renowned cellist, Yo-Yo Ma is performing in Calgary for the first time in over 20 years with two sold-out performances! This evening he will be performing with the Calgary Philharmonic and they will be live-streaming the performance. Here he is with the cello section of the Calgary Philharmonic including our very own Miss Jaewon…
As we discussed at the Parent workshop this fall, we can’t emphasize enough the importance of having students listen to high-quality professional performances. This not only helps to inspire them as young artists but is also an integral component of their own studies and growth as musicians. Just as a child who is learning to play hockey will benefit from watching a professional NHL game, listening to a high-quality performances by professional musicians are a great gift to share with our students.
If you are home this evening, I encourage you to listen to any portion that you can of the live-stream this evening. The performance begins at 8pm(MST) and can be found on the Calgary Phil site here: http://calgaryphil.com/plan-your-experience/live-stream/
Have a great evening and I hope you enjoy!
