Quoting YoYo Ma, 2019 Commencement Address: "Today, everywhere I go—whenever I hear music
effortlessly crossing a border or see an example of art transcending economic and political differences or
witness scientists from dozens of countries collaborating—I am reminded how essential culture has always
been, in every era, every tradition."
