A&L is excited to partner with UC Berkeley, Opus 3 Artists and other presenting colleagues to make this special virtual experience available to UCSB students for free.

Performing earlier this month in Taiwan, Yo-Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott share songs of comfort and hope, bringing together traditional and new takes on familiar works from Europe, Asia and the Americas to offer solace and connection in a time of anxiety and isolation. “Songs,” the artists write, “are little time capsules of emotions in which connections intertwine with long-lost dreams and desires, feelings of great spirit, optimism and unity. Songs bring a sense of community, identity and purpose, transcending boundaries and binding us together in thanks, consolation and encouragement.” The program will include selections from their forthcoming album, slated for release on December 11.
