Cellist Yo-Yo Ma expresses his support for Ukraine

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. The cellist Yo-Yo Ma began his Monday performance at Washington's Kennedy Center in a special way. A full house stood as he played Ukraine's national anthem.

He was next to a sign that protesters had set up, declaring the street Zelenskyy Way. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
