AUG 22 NOT OUR FIRST GOAT RODEO* FEATURING YO-YO MA, STUART DUNCAN, EDGAR MEYER, AND CHRIS THILE WITH GUEST AOIFE O’DONOVAN

An astounding group of virtuosos—Yo-Yo Ma on cello, Stuart Duncan on fiddle, Edgar Meyer on bass, and Chris Thile on mandolin—reunite live for the first time in nearly a decade. Joined by featured vocalist Aoife O’Donovan, the lively talents of these exceptional artists come together on stage to create a singular sound that’s composed, part improvised, and uniquely American—music so complex to pull off that the group likens it to a goat rodeo, airplane pilots’ nickname for a situation in which many different things need to go right to avoid disaster. In the words of the Los Angeles Times, this concert presents “unlikely musicians on unlikely instruments in concerts … that [are] part blues, part bluegrass and a smidgen of Bach.” Hang on to your seats as the music transports you to magical heights with heart-rending ballads and Americana energy!

They help advance curiosity, understanding and a lifetime involvement and love of music.

A Gift for all of San Diego Through the dedication of many and a strong partnership with the Port of San Diego over the last 17 years, the Symphony is able to create The Shell, a unique and extraordinary space on the bay in San Diego. The Shell will be a place of convening and discovery, where San Diegans can come together to celebrate the beauty of music and nature. A space where the Symphony will expand its reach with new year-round community programming celebrating the vibrant and rich diversity of our city. It will serve as a magnificent welcoming venue for San Diegans and city visitors. This project brings together iconic architecture, a state-of-the-art concert facility and an exceptional public setting. This new permanent outdoor waterfront venue is made possible through the extraordinary philanthropy of people like you. Beautiful, unique spaces are known to transform cities in unimagined ways. Together, we invite you to join us as we forge a bright future for San Diego, its people and the orchestra. Become part of this luminous future. Enhance the lives of San Diegans and their visitors for generations to come.
