Past Event: Midori Residency Program

World-renowned violinist and educator, Midori, joined the GCTYO community in October 2020 for a series of virtual classes for students, teachers and families. The presentations were part of the Covid-19 Support Program from Midori’s Orchestra Residencies Program.

Four GCTYO students performed for Midori, who gave feedback and suggestions. String students, parents, and teachers were invited to watch the class. Over 100 people attended.

Students were challenged to improve their practicing skills with tips from Midori on How to Practice.
