The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival celebrates its 20th season with Midori and a wide array of internationally recognized award-winning superstars. 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 May, she will be an honoree of the 43rd Kennedy Center Honors. The Honors recipients are recognized for their contributions to American culture through the performing arts.“From an early age,” said Midori, “I have been gifted with extraordinary experiences. I consider them to be my treasure and fortune that I might now draw upon. I wish to accomplish much going forward. My plans are to be making music again, in both pioneering and traditional ways, to sing out and to stir what lies within us, to describe mysteries, of the heart and of the mind.”
