Cellist Yo-Yo Ma performed for students at Chicago’s Swift Elementary School on Monday. Can you imagine a better start to your week than watching Yo-Yo Ma play the Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 in your school’s auditorium?!
Here’s a link to a video in the Chicago Tribune that shows the kids’ reactions. And not only did Ma make them cheer, he made them laugh. It was, to quote one of my favorite children’s authors, A Good Day.
