Since 2000, The Silk Road Ensemble has been redefining classical music for 21st-century audiences. The group has been called “ vibrant and virtuosic” by the Wall Street Journal, “ one of the 21st century’s great ensembles” by the Vancouver Sun, and a “ roving musical laboratory without walls” by the Boston Globe. Representing a global array of cultures, Silk Road Ensemble members co-create art, performances, and ideas.
Cellist Yo-Yo Ma established the nonprofit organization Silkroad and the Ensemble to explore the role of the arts in fostering cross-cultural understanding, deepening learning, and promoting innovation.
