Cellist Yo-Yo Ma will perform J.S. Bach’s six cello suites live from the studios of public media producer WGBH on Sunday, May 24 at 3:00 p.m. ET, as a memorial for those we have lost in the pandemic and a tribute to the resilience of our communities.

This performance comes during what would have been the now-postponed final leg of Ma's The Bach Project, a 36-stop, six-continent tour of the complete cello suites. The Project is part of a larger conversation about how culture can help us to imagine and build the world we want.

Listen Sunday May 24 at 3:00 p.m. on WEKU-Classical and watch the live video below.
