The 2016-17 Season will be a memorable one as the orchestra welcomes internationally acclaimed violinist, Midori to Marin. The Marin Symphony and its Youth Orchestra have been selected as this season’s sole recipient of her Prestigious Orchestra Residency Program Award. In addition to working with the youth programs and providing outreach to Marin schools, Midori will be the featured guest artist for the Orchestra’s Masterworks 2 program.
The program features Mason Bates’ Devils Radio with equal parts darkness and groove. Midori will then perform Britten’s Violin Concerto, a demanding work which features both technically brilliant and elegantly lyrical elements. Finally, Bela Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, one of his most popular works, will delve into the rich tradition of Eastern European folk music.
