Highlights from the Fireside Chat with Yo-Yo Ma at Connections

At Connections ’19, we had the opportunity to listen to world renowned cellist and 19 Grammy awards winner, Yo-Yo Ma, as he discusses with Soledad O’Brien. He shares his enduring belief that culture has the power to create moments of shared understanding and is essential to imagining and building a better future. Through his music, Yo-Yo strives to foster connections that stimulate the imagination and reinforce our humanity. Here are some of the highlights from his chat:

“Everything is hard until it isn’t. Everything is strange until you make it your own.”

 “The ‘edge’ is a really important place in science, culture, economics, etc. it’s where a lot of creativity happens that leads to innovation. That’s why understanding what’s happening at national borders are important for me and why I want to play there.”  “Nobody teaches you in school that every person you meet is the most important person on the world.“
