Yo-Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott and The Assad Brothers Reunite for An Evening of Latin American Music in Reno


April 26 Artown Encore Performance Expected to Sell Out

World-renown cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Kathryn Stott and South American guitarists The Assad Brothers bring a night of unconventional classical music as part of Artown’s Encore, Thursday, April 26 at 8 p.m. at the Grand Sierra Resort Grand Theatre in Reno, Nev. Tickets are going fast for the performance and expected to sell out.

Ma, a 15-time Grammy Award winning cellist, explores music beyond the Western classical tradition seeking inspiration and collaboration from many diverse cultures. Of his 75 albums many are classical, yet many defy categorization thanks to partnerships with artists such as Bobby McFerrin and explorations of genres such as Brazilian and Asian.

Ma performs with renowned British pianist Kathryn Stott, not merely an accompanist but a partner in creating a sonic energy through shared music-making.  The Assad Brothers, whose guitar playing is rich in Brazilian music tradition and filled with exceptional artistry, innovation and expression, joins the pair.


Tickets are available online at GrandSierraResort.com, by phone at 800-648-3568 or in person with no service fees at the Grand Sierra Resort box office. Friends of Artown, the festival’s individual donor program, can purchase tickets at a 10 percent discount with membership.
