Featuring Midori Goto
The Rochester Music Guild is proud to welcome internationally acclaimed violinist Midori to our Lunch & Learn program. Midori will present on a topic of her choice and perform on the violin. Japanese-born violinist Midori Goto, most often know simply as Midori, made her professional debut with the New York Philharmonic at the age of 11 and has since gone on to international acclaim as a soloist and recording artist. She has used her fame to found a series of successful not-for-profit organizations aimed at bringing music education to underprivileged children. In recognition of such activities, in 2007 she was named a UN Messenger of Peace. Midori visits Rochester for a weeklong residency with SEMYO and the Rochester Symphony Orchestra culminating in solo performances with each ensemble. For more information on Midori’s schedule of activities please visit SEMYO.
