Music and citizenship go together. That’s the vision of Yo-Yo Ma, one of the great musicians of our time and the Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. As members of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, Ma and ballet star Damian Woetzel have engaged in an ongoing conversation about how artists practice their citizenship, as individuals and through institutions—and how the arts fulfill a fundamental human need by forging and strengthening community. Join Ma, Woetzel, and a group of citizen musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra as they discuss and demonstrate this vision on the Festival stage.
