Yo-Yo Ma believes musicians are seekers of truth “in a way that gives meaning and sustenance to individuals and communities. That’s art for life’s sake.” Ma, who must be counted among the most respected and adored musicians of the last 50 years, will enchant a Hancher audience for the first time since 2000, performing solo cello pieces.
