Symphony Center Presents

SCP Main Page Content 14/15

“I am a human being first, a musician second, and cellist third.” – Pablo Casals About the Symphony Center Presents Yo-Yo Ma has described his concept of citizen musicianship in terms of three values: “As a musician, you are always working toward something larger than yourself.” Musicians balance in mind both the biggest conceivable picture of the world and the most minute sensitivity to their present position in it. Musicians strive to communicate. Whether as performers, composers or teachers, their work can’t be done alone, and isn’t done until their music lives in someone else. The Symphony Center Presents explores these values through new work undertaken by musicians and staff of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Civic Orchestra of Chicago, as well as by partners in this initiative, whether they are right here in Chicago or from all over the world.

Symphony Center Presents Launched by Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant Yo-Yo Ma, the Symphony Center Presents encourages musicians of all skill levels—as well as music lovers, educators, and music and educational organizations—to approach their work with an ever-renewed awareness of the impact it has on the world around them.
