Midori takes part in several festivals and workshops in the summer of 2019:
She performs Dvořák’s Violin Concerto with the World Youth Symphony Orchestra under conductor Mei-Ann Chen at the Interlochen Center for the Arts (Michigan, USA) and the same concerto at the Domaine Forget International Festival in Québec (Canada) with the Orchestre symphonique de Québec under Yoav Talmi. She also gives master classes at the Domaine Forget Festival.
Midori gives master classes as well at the University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar (Germany), at Ravinia’s Summer Conservatory, the Ravinia Steans Music Institute (Illinois, USA) and at Krzyżowa Music, a vibrant five-year-old festival in Lower Silesia (Poland). In Weimar, in addition to individual and group lessons, the orchestra studio with the Jenaer Philharmonie and a participant concert at the end of the course, Midori and her students bring music to a hospice in the city.
At the Aspen Music Festival (Colorado, USA), she performs Schumann’s Violin Concerto with the Aspen Chamber Symphony under Erik Nielsen.
