On March 3, cellist Yo-Yo Ma will perform at Hill Auditorium with pianist Emanuel Ax and violinist Leonidas Kavakos.  Audiences will see Ma, Ax and Kavakos perform three piano trios written over 20 years ago by Ludwig van Beethoven. Composed specifically for the violin, cello and piano, the songs scheduled to be played are Piano Trio in c minor, Op. 1, No. 3; Piano Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 70, No. 2; and Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 97 (Archduke). Hosted by the University Musical Society, the concert takes place approximately one year after Yo-Yo Ma visited Flint and Ann Arbor for his Day of Action and two-day residency in 2019. His Day of Action in Flint brought together 50 community leaders and included activities to raise awareness while providing an opportunity for community collaboration towards social change.
