Multi-Grammy® Award-winning cellist Yo-Yo Ma returns to perform with your Colorado Symphony this holiday season. Yo-Yo Ma’s multifaceted 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. Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire, coming together with colleagues for chamber music, or exploring cultures and musical forms outside the Western classical tradition, Mr. Ma strives to find connections that stimulate the imagination.

Note: Flex Passes and Student Memberships may not be used on this performance.

The running time of this performance is approximately 1 hour and 32 minutes. This includes one 20-minute intermission.

Boettcher Concert Hall is located in the Denver Performing Arts Complex at 14th and Curtis Streets in the heart of downtown Denver. It's easy to find and there are two large parking garages to the east and west of Boettcher. There are often multiple performances happening at DPAC at the same time, which leads to traffic congestion and lines to get into the parking garages. Be sure to leave plenty of time to get to DPAC—we don't want you to miss any of the music!
