I went to a concert last Wednesday. And it was Yo-Yo Ma, an incredibly famous cellist, who — surprisingly, not everyone I’ve talked to has heard of him. But yeah, Yo-Yo Ma and a famous violinist and pianist who I hadn’t really heard of were all playing at the Wharton center on Wednesday, and I was very excited. Had a whole fiasco with tickets that I will talk about later, but the important thing is all three of them when they came out on stage were wearing baseball caps with the Spartan logo on them.
And yeah, Yo-Yo Ma was like, “Go Green!” and everyone was like, “Go White!” Um, and then in between the first piece and the second piece, Yo-Yo Ma talked a bit about, like, “Spartan Strong” and, you know, touched on, you know, him caring about what happened on the 13th. And I thought that was really sweet that this famous guy who travels all around the world playing his cello, he’s incredibly skilled — that he cares about this university that I go to, that my friends go to, that — yeah. It really touched me that he kind of acknowledged that we’re coming up on the anniversary of that event.
