"Fewer things bring people together like music," says Cinema Center's Executive Director, Jonah Crismore, adding that, "It is through the art of film, and the story of Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, that Cinema Center is able to bring more beautiful music to the community."
For insight on the mission shared by the film, the Ensemble, and the Workshop alike, Eric Edberg, DePauw's Faculty Liaison to Silk Road Ensemble's Global Musician Workshop, took time out from his own vacation travels to join WBOI's Julia Meek by telephone, and discuss the power of those musical "ties that bind."
