Midori Goto made her debut at the age of 11, when famed conductor Zubin Mehta added her to a 1982 program of the New York Philharmonic. Her well-known nonprofit organization Midori and Friends brings music education to children in New York City and Japan.
She will perform in San Diego on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 3, at 2 p.m. at Copley Symphony Hall.
