Violinist Midori performs at Sangamon Auditorium Oct. 25. She is joined on stage by Pianist Özgür Aydin. On the repertoire for the evening: Mozart: Sonata in E-flat Major K.380; Shostakovich: Sonata Op.134; Schumann: Sonata in A minor, Op.105; and Schubert: Fantasy in C Major, D.934. Sometimes the beauty of a musician as a human being translates into their music, and the result is an exquisite experience. Midori is one such musician. With more than a quarter century of know-how and international touring (14 countries this year alone), this LA-based artist continues to push out performances while supporting youth around the world through several associations that she created. In addition she has served as a United Nations Messenger of Peace for the last five years. She is also strings department chair at University of Southern California, and has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in psychology.
