Yo-Yo Ma and the Healing Power of Music:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
I first heard Yo-Yo Ma play in December of 1972, just after the re-election of Richard Nixon as president. From 1968 on we were going through the throes of the anti-Vietnam war protests. I sat beside a dear friend and fellow faculty member in the music room at the president of the university’s annual faculty Christmas party. He was in the throes of making a decision i knew nothing about then; I was captivated by the brother/sister duo who made the evening magic. The decades have passed; my friend is long in his grave. The magic of Yo-Yo Ma’s music has become a healing force across the world in good times and bad. This post, a report from the Singapore Straits Times, reminds us of the enduring power of music and the essential goodness of the great musicians in our land. Yo-Yo, we need your music now more than ever. (Thanks to Bridgelight for the images.)
