About Midori

Midori is recognized as an extraordinary performer, a devoted and gifted educator, and an innovative community engagement activist. In recognition of the breadth and quality of her work in these three entirely separate fields, in 2012 she was given the prestigious Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum in Davos, was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and was awarded an honorary doctorate in music by Yale University. In 2007, she was named a Messenger of Peace by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. In essence, over the years she has created a new model for young artists who seek to balance the joys and demands of a performing career at the highest level with a hands-on investment in the power of music to change lives. Midori is now teaching at University of Southern California as the Chair of the Strings Department and she has been given the title of "Distinguished Professor" in recognition of her outstanding accomplishments in teaching. She is also the holder of the Jascha Heifetz Chair in Violin.

    The performance was excellent. I particularly like the 3rd piece by Bach, Partita No. 2 in D Minor. Thanks for organizing the free tickets for us.

    One of the best recitals I've heard in a long time. Absolutely wonderful, particularly the complex Chaconne, as part of the Partita No2 in D Minor.

      Hi Margaret, it's going to be a wonderful event. The organiser informed us that they are expecting it to be a full house concert. Now that we have you on the waiting list, we will see whether there will be drop outs along the way.
      Again, we have asked that members who decides not to go, to release their rsvps 48 hours in advance to make room for the next person in line. Thanks again for supporting our events.

    For some unknown reason my RSVP was changed. Why is that?

    May 5, 2013

    • Art Exploration S.

      Dear Adrian, we had to remove members who did not provide full details such as full name and contact details. We see that you have added that back in now, and therefore will not be removed. We have to adhere to very strict rules as we do not know all the members. We hope you understand. Look forward to having you with us.
