Tribune-Review: Yo-Yo Ma to receive first Fred Rogers Legacy Award

In a 1985 episode of “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood,” Yo-Yo Ma, the world-renowned cellist, performs two Bach movements before the show’s host tells his audience; “Do you know what a present that is? When you play something for somebody, it’s just like giving them a present.”

Ma will be the first recipient of a Fred Rogers Legacy Award, developed by the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media at St. Vincent College in Unity.
