“What Are You Excited About This Season? #1: Josh Groban” — “I always try to make time to see Yo-Yo Ma perform in any capacity but I especially love his work with the Silk Road Ensemble. Combining classical music with the roots of world and folk music is such a natural and exciting fit and putting them back at Avery Fisher is sure to be an awesome event.” For info and tix: http://bit.ly/1s6UMDw #joshgroban #yoyoma
