MUSIC

Another blowout week at the CSO features the world’s greatest cellist, Yo-Yo Ma, sandwiched between two performances of Beethoven’s epic and rarely performed Missa Solemnis, led by just-appointed May Festival principal conductor Juanjo Mena. A good excuse to camp out at the Taft all weekend!
