Classical Notes

A New Yorker in Fergus Falls

Posted at 2:25 PM on August 8, 2008 by Gillian Martin

I was looking at the violinist Midori's website this afternoon, and in the "Guest Column" section came across an entry written by a board member of her Partners in Performance (PiP) program.

It tells about Midori's concerts in Fergus Falls and Dawson last fall. It was interesting to me to read a New Yorker's-eye-view of Minnesota. (He liked it.)

By the way, Midori will be performing in Bemidji as part of the 2009-2010 PiP program.
