This special concert near the end of UMS’s season brings together three artists who have been collaborating for the better part of a decade, most notably on the best-selling recording The Goat Rodeo Sessions.

Yo-Yo Ma’s multi-faceted career is a testament to his continual search for new ways to communicate with audiences and to his personal desire for artistic growth and renewal. Here, he is joined by mandolinist Chris Thile (Punch Brothers, Nickel Creek) and bass virtuoso Edgar Meyer for a special concert that brings together three string masters who come from wildly different backgrounds yet excel in virtually all genres. They pool their talents for a fresh, new perspective on brilliantly-conceived music by Johann Sebastian Bach.

This concert will be performed without intermission.
