Yo Yo Ma
Seemed like everyone had been to the Hollywood Bowl this summer but us. Well, finally, last night, we made it to see celloist Yo Yo Ma who was a guest of Placido Domingo and the LA Philharmonic. It was brilliant. I've always wanted to see Yo Yo Ma live. His music is so vibrant and captivating. He himself was just charismatic, always engaging the orchestra and the audience. The encore that brought the young 10 year old musicians next to us to a standing ovation saying "Bravo, bravo!" was a solo piece from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and then a duet with Placido singing opera.
