Renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma to give free performance in Ohio

WARREN, Ohio (AP) - World renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma plans to give a free performance this month in northeast Ohio as part of a national arts exchange.

The Tribune Chronicle reports Ma will play with members of the Warren Philharmonic Orchestra and the Youngstown Symphony Orchestra on Aug. 13 in Warren, roughly 55 miles (89 kilometers) southeast of downtown Cleveland.

Ma is set to perform with the Cleveland Orchestra the night before at Blossom Music Center near Akron.

The concert will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Deborah Rutter, president of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. The Kennedy Center is sponsoring Ma's performance as part of its Arts Across America campaign.
