The East Texas Symphony Orchestra and UT Tyler Cowan Center are co-presenting Yo-Yo Ma on September 17.

You read that right, the world-class cellist is coming to Tyler, TX. Tickets may be hard to come by, though. Subscribers to the Cowan Center will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets. Subscriptions go on sale Monday, June 19.

If any tickets are left after the subscribers get their opportunity to purchase, general ticket sales will begin Aug. 21. The multi-faceted musician has won 18 Grammy Awards over his career, and performed at President Obama's inauguration.

All the things I love about life outside music have to do with people, and playing the cello allows me to fulfill all those interests through music. - Yo-Yo Ma
