Big news! The 2018 Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras are bringing Midori, one of the world's preeminent violinists, to Boulder. She'll perform two concerts — Nov. 4, 2018, with the Boulder Philharmonic and Nov. 5, 2018, with the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras. Both concerts take place in Macky Auditorium, the spectacular, 100-year-old theater on the CU Boulder campus.
Nov. 4, 2018
7:30pm, Macky Auditorium
How cool is this? Audience members will use their smartphones to transform Macky into an immersive aviary! The sounds will accompany the Boulder Phil as they presents Academy Award-winning composer Tan Dun’s "Passacaglia: Secret of Wind and Birds." Then, superstar violinist Midori joins the Phil to present her interpretation of the virtuosic Sibelius Violin Concerto. Brahms’ bittersweet masterpiece, Symphony No. 3, brings this memorable evening to a heartfelt conclusion.
The Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras offer opportunities for young musicians to hone their talents, advance their training and develop their musical passion through high-level performances. Midori will join the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras and Boulder Philharmonic for a 2018 residency.
This exciting opportunity gives GBYO a chance to rehearse and perform with Midori. She will work with each orchestra in GBYO, and the residency will culminate with her performance of the third movement of Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto.
