Yo-Yo Ma Performs Bach Cello Suites

KALW joins our public radio network across the country in broadcasting cellist Yo-Yo Ma's live performance of J.S. Bach's six cello suites. The program will air live from WGBH's Fraser Performance studio this Sunday, May 24 from 12-2:30 pm PT as a memorial for those we have lost in the pandemic and a tribute to the resilience of our communities.

At KALW, we have been moved by the collective experience of the pandemic. In our recent fundraising campaign, we received donations in honor of loved ones our listeners have lost from complications due to COVID-19. And many donors mentioned that they were contributing money from their stimulus checks. It is deeply touching and humbling--and we thank you for the support and for your ears.

In case you missed it, today's coverage in the New York Times gives a window into the lives lost.
