Violinist Midori to perform in Dublin Thursday, Oct. 27

Students admitted free.

The Dublin-Laurens Arts Council is bringing internationally known violinist Midori to Theatre Dublin for a concert Thursday, Oct. 27.

Midori Goto, known professionally simply as Midori, was born in Osaka, Japan. She made her musical debut there at age 6. She came to the United States in 1981 at age 10 to study at the Aspen Music School and later the Julliard School. Within a year, she played with the New York Philharmonic’s New Year’s Eve concert. Soon after, conductor Zubin Mehta invited her to tour Asia with the orchestra.

Midori has become one of the world’s top ranked concert attractions. Often associated with Mehta, she has worked with other conductors worldwide. For much of her career, Midori has kept to mainstream violin concertos from Bach to Bartok. However, she had broadened her scope with recitals and chamber music and has commissioned new works.

Her Dublin concert will include a Bach violin solo, a Mozart sonata for piano and violin, Sonata #2 for piano and violin by Ravel and several shorter works. She will be accompanied by pianist Ieva Jokubavicute

Midori’s concert is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. at Theatre Dublin, 314 Academy Avenue. A reception for the musicians will follow at the Page House, 711 Bellevue Avenue.

Individual tickets for Midori’s concert are $50. Admission for Arts Council members is included in their membership. Students are children are admitted free of charge.
