Midori

Midori Cut out

Saturday, February 1, 2014 - 8pm, Miller Auditorium
Prelude talk by Maestro Harvey at 7pm

This season we are thrilled to welcome superstar violinist, Midori to join us for a very special week of performances, outreach and advocacy. Hailed as an extraordinary performer, gifted educator, and an innovative community engagement activist, Midori is one of the most celebrated figures in the music world. Equally passionate about performance and education, Midori's week in Kalamazoo will include master classes, concerts in schools and a very special Symphonic Series performance with the KSO. This grand affair promises to bring the entire community together to celebrate great music and musicianship.

Midori's appearance is made possible in part by the Barry Ross Guest Violinist Fund.
