Embark on a dynamic musical journey in this inspiring documentary that provides a front-row seat to a milestone performance by the Silk Road Ensemble and dives into the rich history of this “mobile musical think tank” formed by renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma. The eclectic group unites distinguished musicians, composers and performing artists from more than 20 countries to celebrate, explore and experiment with the wide variety of cultural approaches to musical performances. The group recently celebrated 15 years together with a summer concert at Tanglewood, an important classical music site in western Massachusetts. This intimate documentary features performances from that concert, background interviews, behind-the-scenes excerpts and magical offstage moments.
Silk Road Ensemble with Yo-Yo Ma: Live from Tanglewood airs on Friday, May 9th at 9:00 pm.
