Complete This Triad

Milli Vanilli’s entire career . . . Ashlee Simpson on SNL . . . Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman at the Inauguration?

Say it ain’t so, Yo-Yo.

‘Fraid so.  Because the cold and wind threatened piano, cello, and violin strings the Ma/Perlman/Two Other Musicians quartet string-synced to a recording of the inaugural piece they had made two days earlier, listening to it through headphones to match its broadcast.  Said Ma we “knew we couldn’t have any technical or instrumental malfunction on that occasion. A broken string was not an option. It was wicked cold.”

He gets points for sounding like he is from Boston, although a true local would have said “wicked pissah cold.”
