UCSB Arts & Lectures will present the most celebrated classical musician in the world, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, in an inspiring lecture-demonstration titled “Reflecting on a Life in Music” at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 5 at the Granada Theatre, 1214 State St. in Santa Barbara.

The special presentation will incorporate video, performance and discussion to address the role of music in today’s global culture.

Hailed by the New York Times as “a national institution,” Ma is the recipient of many prestigious awards, including a 2010 Presidential Medal of Freedom and more than 15 Grammys.

Whether performing new or familiar works from the cello repertoire or exploring music forms outside Western culture — as with his much lauded Silk Road Project — Ma is a consummate artist whose unique passion never fails to stimulate the imagination and stir the soul.

Tickets to “Reflecting on a Life in Music” range from $35 to $65 for general admission; $150 for a Gold Circle ticket (which includes VIP seating and an exclusive champagne reception); and $21 for UCSB students with a current student ID. Tickets are limited.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
