New Year’s Eve Musical Celebration

starring Yo-Yo Ma, Julia Bullock, Bria Skonberg, Leif Ove Andsnes, Matthew Whitaker, and many more!

Join the artists who have made the Fall 2020 Cal Performances at Home season possible for a celebratory evening of exclusive performances recorded especially for the occasion. Soloists, recitalists, jazz artists, and chamber ensembles featured in our online streaming series have each contributed a special musical selection to help our audiences usher in 2021 in style. (And really… who doesn’t want to say goodbye to 2020?!)

All performers have carefully chosen their program, with the aim of sharing works that convey the joy, hope, warmth, and spirit of the holidays. We invite you to close out the year among friends—with familiar faces from our extraordinary artist roster, in transcendent performances that promise to remind one and all of the power of the arts to uplift and connect us, even in the most trying of times.
