The Silkroad Ensemble

  • GPAC—Duncan Williams Performance Hall 1801 Exeter Road Germantown, TN 38138 (map)

“Radical cultural collaboration” was one goal cellist Yo-Yo Ma had when he founded the arts organization Silkroad, bringing together passionate musicians from all corners of the world to co-create something very new, made up of things often very old. The Silkroad Ensemble carries on this work, with musicians who represent dozens of countries and appear in many different combinations. No two performances may be alike, but all will be joyous and memorable, drawing on rich tapestries of musical traditions while aiming to lower walls and contribute to a more hopeful world.

While Yo-Yo Ma has performed at GPAC on three occasions he will not appear with his ensemble on November 9.
