Midori and Abramovic performance part of Performing Arts Series

10/20/2008 | By: Andrea Turman  |

For 25 years, superstar violinist Midori has stunned audiences worldwide with her technical brilliance, emotional depth and an enthusiastic exploration of new territory that fans, students and media alike have come to expect from this astonishing artist. Her virtuosity has led such maestros as Zubin Mehta, Isaac Stern and Pinchas Zukerman to claim she performs musical miracles — and Leonard Bernstein to literally fall to his knees in disbelief. At 11, Midori debuted with the New York Philharmonic, and today she holds a master’s in psychology from New York University, chairs the strings department at the University of Southern California and travels as an agent for outreach, fostering accessibility for young musicians the world over.

Midori and pianist Charles Abramovic are set to inspire Reno audiences Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in Nightingale Concert Hall during the 2008-09 Performing Arts Series on the University of Nevada, Reno campus.
