“One of the 21st century’s great ensembles.” Vancouver Sun

Overview

A grand odyssey around the world by one of music’s greatest ensembles

The virtuoso collective Silkroad Ensemble, founded by superstar cellist Yo-Yo Ma^, is inspired by the colours of the world and the rich musical language borne from our cultural differences.

Its Grammy Award-winning music is a vibrant, passionate and ecstatic celebration of global artistic traditions, performed by outstanding contemporary musicians representing dozens of nationalities and instrumental disciplines.

Universally famous in its own right, this dynamic, ever-evolving group is composed of international artists who unite to present unique, never-to-be-repeated concerts. Converging centuries, continents and cultures, its repertoire will bring together traditional Vietnamese, Chinese and Kazakh music; Finnish folk song; jugalbandi (Indian classical); popular jazz; and much more.

A privilege to see and even more beautiful to hear, Silkroad Ensemble’s maiden Queensland performance in QPAC’s Concert Hall will be a night to remember.

^Please note: Yo-Yo Ma will not be appearing.
