Wolf Trap: The Silkroad Ensemble
The Silk Road Ensemble creates music that is contemporary and ancient, familiar and foreign,
traditional and innovative, and draws on styles from around the world to create a new musical language.
Founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the group has been called “vibrant and virtuosic” (The Wall Street Journal),
“one of the 21st century’s great ensembles” (Vancouver Sun), and a “roving musical laboratory without
walls” (The Boston Globe). Yo-Yo Ma will not be appearing at this performance.
