The first thing I noticed when I checked my email this morning was a message from a colleague alerting me to the fact that Yo-Yo Ma will be speaking, performing, and giving a master class at DePauw this fall as part of DePauw Discourse 2011: Empowering Society Through the Arts. What a great way to start the day!
Judson and Joyce Green, DePauw alumni, are terrific supporters of the arts. The major donors behind the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts at DePauw, they also fund the Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant for the Chicago Symphony, a position currently held by Yo-Yo. Many thanks to them for making this possible!
