World-renowned violinist Midori is spending a week in Northern Virginia, working with local music educators, students, and the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra as part of her Orchestra Residencies Program. The week culminates with concerts on March 31 and April 1, with Midori playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. The concert also includes Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, and the world premiere of Alexandria Symphony Orchestra Music Director Kim Allen Kluge’s MEIBUKI – Regeneration.
