MORE INFO

In the nearly 20 years since its founding by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Silkroad Ensemble’s sublimely virtuosic members have created an extraordinary flow of gorgeous, impassioned music seamlessly joining disparate traditions, new and ancient. The ensemble returns to the Hop to premiere a work by Jia Daqun, one of China’s leading classical composers, inspired by Chinese calligraphy and featuring 16-time Grammy winner Ma.

FUNDING

Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts ARTWORKS and the Marion and Frederick B. Whittemore ’53, T’54 Distinguished Artists Series Fund, and a gift from Daniel S. Bernstein ‘87 P’18 P’21 and Claire Foerster P’18 P’21.

Mr. Ma’s residency generously supported by Dartmouth’s Montgomery Fellows Program.
