Cellist Eric Edberg will warm up the audience with a performance of Bach’s Prelude in G, as well as discuss the special relationship Yo-Yo Ma has with the DePauw and Greencastle community, before this Film Studies’ screening of “The Music of Strangers.” Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville’s feature-length documentary tells the extraordinary story of the renowned international musical collective created by legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma, focusing on the journeys of a small group of Silk Road Ensemble mainstays. Through these moving individual narratives, the filmmakers paint a vivid portrait of a bold musical experiment and a global search for the ties that bind. Co-sponsored by DePauw School of Music and Asian Studies. All are welcome to this free screening.
“The clearest reason for music, for culture… is it gives us meaning.” — Yo-Yo Ma
