Cal Performances at Home Beyond the Stage

Artist Conversation with Yo-Yo Ma & Kathryn Stott

An intimate conversation between the artists and Cal Performances Executive and Artistic Director Jeremy Geffen about how it felt to go onstage to a full hall after nine months of not performing, how Kathryn chose the program, how digital performances can reach new and diverse audiences, how the pandemic has shifted not just the performing arts, but education as well, the importance to responding to need, and so much more in this Beyond the Stage artist talk.

This artist conversation video was recorded in conjunction with the Yo-Yo Ma & Kathryn Stott; Songs of Comfort and Hope performance, part of the Cal Performances at Home Fall Season.
