The man is a marvel. I especially enjoyed the footage of him playing before President Kennedy at age 7 which I had not seen before. Watch it all.

One of the best programs of this holiday season appeared on the Ovation Network - a video describing how Yo Yo Ma put together his Christmas album with such diverse artists as James Taylor and Dave Brubeck. Wonderful music - even more wonderful conversation. I’ve been a Yo Yo Ma fan since seeing him perform at Mechanics Hall in Worcester MA almost thirty years ago.
