Midori is appointed as the Artistic Director of Ravinia Steans Music Institute's Piano & Strings program, effective this fall, to begin overseeing the 2024 summer season.
She will lead young professional violinists, violists, cellists, pianists, and members of pre-existing chamber groups through intensive rehearsals and coaching. The faculty roster includes renowned teaching artists, including herself.
Midori states: "I am very much looking forward to being involved in RSMI in this new capacity. Working with young musicians has been central to my career, and this program is one of the most important of its kind in the music field. It has been led for the last 30 years by Miriam Fried, and I am honored to inherit her remarkable legacy as I lead the program forward in the coming years."
