Yo-Yo Ma playing ‘Appalachia Waltz’ with DePauw students

http://www.facebook.com/v/10150415619203513 Here’s a video I took of Mr. Ma playing Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz with DePauw students at The Hub (the centralized non-dorm food court on the DePauw campus).  This was supposed to something of a flash mob event though before any of the music students, much less Mr. Ma, arrived, there were already several hundred students filling the Hub to the brim!

There is a much better video of Mr. Ma taken from the floor posted by The DePauw Multimedia here.

Also, a couple of videos of a performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major, Op. 20 with DePauw students and faculty at Asbury Towers Retirement Home here and here.

The Asbury performance happened not more than an hour after the Hub appearance!
