Midori, world-renowned violinist, will perform on Amelia Island in April as part of the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival’s 2021 concert series. Midori is not only a visionary artist, activist, and educator, but also a United Nations Messenger of Peace inspiring young people through music education. She made her debut with the New York Philharmonic at age 11 as a surprise guest soloist in 1982!

In May, she will be an honoree of the 43rd Kennedy Center Honors, along with country singer-songwriter Garth Brooks and actor Dick Van Dyke. The Honors recipients are recognized for their contributions to American culture through the performing arts.“Hosting Midori reflects our growing status as one of the nation’s premier classical music festivals. The ability to grace our stage with an internationally renowned artist who is recognized with the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor is a testimony to the strength and support of our valued contributors, ticket-buyers, and volunteers,” said Christopher Rex, the Festival’s General and Artistic Director.

Midori will perform at the charming Amelia Plantation Chapel with Pianist Ieva Jokubaviciute on Friday, April 9, 2021. This is truly a rare opportunity to see a legendary artist perform in a beautifully intimate setting. Midori’s concert affirms the Festival’s commitment to bringing world-class musicians to our community.

The Festival celebrates its 20th season with a wide array of internationally recognized award-winning superstars from multiple genres. Respecting the safety of both musicians and the audience, the Festival has arranged for both live and virtual venues.
