Yo-Yo Ma’s daughter didn’t want him to play at her wedding


Legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma’s daughter Emily Hornor Ma was recently married in the Berkshires, but asked her father not to play at her wedding because she wanted him to “just be a dad that night.”

She married RBC investment banker John Mistovich at Trinity Episcopal Church in Lenox, Mass., in front of 300 guests.

Instead of Yo-Yo, the Alex Donner Orchestra performed at the reception…

…at a private home, and they played the “Blue Danube Waltz” for the newlyweds’ first dance, then the father and bride danced to “My Girl.”
