Midori Given Honorary Doctor of Music by Yale University

This past June, Yale University awarded an honorary doctor of music degree to the violinist, Midori.  She was recognized as an individual of extraordinary accomplishment and service.  Midori has long been a leading performer in both concert and recital halls with a strong commitment to education and to community engagement.

Midori's statement in response to the award:  "It is thrilling to receive this honorary doctorate from Yale University, and it is truly humbling to contemplate the company I'm in!  I started out playing music because of the joy it brings to our lives,but in my work I am also discovering every day the power music has to heal, to educate, to stimulate the human mind in multiple dimensions.  It is deeply gratifying and inspiring to know that Yale recognizes and values this work.
