Midori with ICEP in Cambodia (December 2019)

For 15 years now – one could almost call it a tradition –, Midori ends her year with MUSIC SHARING’s International Community Engagement Program (ICEP). During Christmas celebrations at the end of December, the violinist and UN messenger of peace forms and joins a string quartet together with this year’s three young musicians Elina Buksha (violin), Erika Gray (viola) and Noémie Raymond-Friset (cello) to present music to, above all, children and youth in rural and otherwise underserved areas in Cambodia, while encouraging audiences and musicians to connect with each other through the arts.

Since 2016, Midori and those young musicians travelling with her, share their impressions in a diary on the MUSIC SHARING ICEP Blog. The biographies of the various teams throughout the years can still be found there too as well as general information on the program and organization. On MUSIC SHARING‘s YouTube channel you can also find videos of the previous visits to India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanman, amongst others.
