This special concert at 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 bestselling recording The Goat Rodeo Sessions.

YoYo 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 virtuosos who come from wildly different backgrounds yet excel in virtually all genres.

They pool their talents for a fresh, new perspective on the brilliantly conceived music by the titan of the German Baroque, Johann Sebastian Bach. The Program includes transcriptions of excerpts from The Art of the Fugue and various keyboard works, as well as organ and viola da gamba trio sonatas. This concert is currently available only to subscribers; remaining tickets go on sale on August 15, 2016.
