He studied the violin and viola and then found himself in his present instrument the cello. Yo-Yo Grew up in a household full of musicians with his mother a singer and his father a professor of music and professional violinist. His impressive schooling background from Julliard to Harvard and spending many summers playing in the Marlboro Festival Orchestra. Yo-Yo was named Peace Ambassador by the UN in 2006 and in 2009 President Obama appointed him on the committee of Arts and Humanities.
