The Orchestra Residencies Program (ORP) has been in existence since the 2004/05 season. Over a period of four to seven days, Midori spends time with a youth orchestra with connection to a small professional orchestra. She teaches the young musicians in various formats and participates in a wide range of activities tailored to optimize the involvement of the youth orchestra. ORPs have already taken place in Costa Rica, Bulgaria, Peru and various US states.
