Cellist Yo-Yo Ma is one of the most accomplished musicians of our time. He has performed before presidents (starting with Eisenhower and Kennedy, when he was just 7 years old) and prime ministers, won 15 Grammies, played on the soundtrack of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and other popular films and appeared in TV shows as diverse as Sesame Street, The West Wing and The Colbert Report. Particularly acclaimed for his performances and recordings of Bach’s Cello Suites, Ma, who was born in Paris in 1955 and grew up in New York City, began studying the cello at age 4, started performing at age 5 and earned a Bachelor’s degree from Harvard.
