Exclusive: Yo Yo Ma fills in for sick orchestral cellistmain
A correspondent in Vancouver reports:
On Friday night (May 1) Yo-Yo Ma filled in for a cellist in the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra who threw out his back.
It is not unheard of for Yo-Yo to join the section after he plays the concerto, but in this case, he played in the cello section in the first half of the concert, and then performed the Dvorak Concerto in the second half.
During the extended ovation, Yo Yo took a selfie with conductor Bramwell Tovey.
