8 p.m., Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St., (410) 783-8000, bsomusic.org, $100.
So, tickets to see world-renown cellist Yo-Yo Ma at the Meyerhoff this week are unsurprisingly sold out. However, for a pretty penny, you can still see him on bleacher-style risers—which honestly don’t seem especially comfortable. But, you’ll be seated on the stage and you get a glass of champagne. Sweet!
