Dear Mr. Ma,
Many years ago we met and sat together on a flight from LA to Boston. The only thing sitting between us was your Cello while we shared our career path challenges and aspirations.
We exchanged greetings and salutions for a few years after our meeting but lost contact as our careers seemed to take on a life of their own. Hopefully, you will remember.
My wife and I will be flying to Chicago from Cape Cod to see your performance scheduled for Oct. 14th at the CSO. It would be great to say “hello” again. Would it be possible to help arrange a “back stage visit” after you performance? It would be great to shake hands again after so many years.
