Yo-Yo Ma Live Concert Dates in 2024

“Music, like all of culture, helps us to understand our environment, each other, and ourselves. Culture helps us to imagine a better future. Culture helps turn “them” into “us.” And these things have never been more important.” — Yo-Yo Ma.

After resounding live performances in Taiwan and Hong Kong, Yo-Yo Ma (馬友友) is back on the road again.

Set to play with his long time collaborator Kathryn Stott, his philosophy of expanding music via culture continues to impact leaders and music makers worldwide.

Yo-Yo recently released his third album, titled Six Evolutions. This recording of Bach’s cello suites also includes Songs of Comfort and Hope, created and recorded with pianist Kathryn Stott in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Oct 2023, the world-renowned cellist and Grammy winner performed at the National Kaosiung Center for the Arts with his long time collaborator, pianist Kathryn Stott. Just a month later, Ma’s performance with the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra sold out in under an hour.

They performed several timeless classics, including the Cello Sonata in D minor, Op. 40 by Dmitri Shostakovich and the Cello Sonata in A major by César Franck.


Most recently, Yo-Yo began Our Common Nature, a cultural journey to celebrate the ways that nature can reunite us in pursuit of a shared future. This project follows the Bach Project, a 36-community, six-continent tour of J. S. Bach’s cello suites paired with local cultural programming.
