Venue: Charleston Gaillard Center

Duration: Approximately 2 hours


In June 2023, Yo-Yo Ma played the final notes of Bach’s Cello Suites in Nairobi. They marked the end of a five-year, six-continent journey, a search for answers to the question that has in many ways defined his career: what is culture’s role in society? Along the way, he met artists, scientists, and community leaders imagining and building a better future. He also encountered a global pandemic and mounting human and environmental crises, welcomed new grandchildren, and began a project to explore our connections to nature.

As we continue to navigate an ever-changing world, Yo-Yo brings his artistry and perspective to the Spoleto audience, inviting them to contemplate the great questions of life and art: What has brought us here? And where will we choose to go next?
