Words from Yo-Yo Ma:

I’m writing to invite you to join me at the third Youth Music Culture Guangdong workshop in Guangzhou in January, 2019. This event has rapidly become a highlight of my year, giving me the unforgettable experience of teaching and working with talented young musicians from across China and oversea, and learning from them in turn.
