The Silk Road Ensemble was formed in 2000 by Yo-Yo Ma. Made up of performers and composers from more than 20 countries, this ensemble was heralded as a “roving musical laboratory without walls” by the Boston Globe.
They are also the subject of the documentary The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble.
The Silk Road Ensemble are bringing their many musical talents to Chicago this summer and playing at Ravinia Pavilion. They will be playing Tuesday August 16th, at 8:00PM CDT.
