Cello there!

The 13 abused siblings who were rescued from a California horror house last month enjoyed a private performance this week from legendary cellist Yo Yo Ma, according to the Press-Enterprise.

Ma entertained the Turpin brothers and sisters — who are recovering after what authorities say was years of starvation and torture at the hands of their twisted parents — before giving a talk in Corona, the city’s mayor told the crowd at the speech.

Some of the children — aged 2 to 29 — are learning to play guitar as part of their rehabilitation, and Fender Guitars has donated 13 instruments to help the siblings in their belated musical education, according to the report.

Despite spending most of their lives trapped inside their home and cut off from education and entertainment, the kids are very creative, according to their lawyer.

“They love to draw, they love to create things, they’re very musical. Both listening to it and learning music to play. And they do a lot of crafts. It’s been really wonderful for them,” attorney Jack Osborn told the Mercury News. 

Since the siblings’ shocking discovery and rescue, local community members have also donated clothes, toys, computers and hundreds of thousands of dollars to help the kids reintegrate into society.

Parents David and Louise Turpin have pleaded not guilty to 82 felony counts, including torture and false imprisonment.
