Special Event: Louisville Orchestra Welcomes Yo-Yo Ma

Thursday, April 27, 2023 8:00pm

Event Description

This is not just any concert performance for the LO, but one featuring a musical lineup that truly reflects the history and DNA of the orchestra itself. Music that speaks to the community outreach and innovations that this orchestra has always valued. From iconic Beethoven to two composers from whom the LO has commissioned works (one recorded on the First Edition label) to an offering by our ground-breaking Rap School, to a selection from a piece written by our very own Teddy Abrams to a performance of one of the iconic cello concertos of the 20th century in the hands of one of the greatest cellists who has ever lived – Yo-Yo Ma. A once in a lifetime concert experience celebrating YOUR Louisville Orchestra!
