About ORP

Welcome to the Orchestra Residencies Program (ORP), where the world of music takes on a new dimension through the power of collaboration and mentorship. Led by the renowned violinist Midori, ORP is more than just a program; it’s an immersive musical experience designed to transform young musicians into accomplished artists.


At ORP, collaboration is the cornerstone of our approach. We collaborate with each community to create a residency which is meaningful to the local community. With Midori’s expertise and guidance, this collaboration evolves into a profound artistic journey.

Inclusive Music Community

ORP is firmly rooted in the ethos of inclusivity and community engagement. Midori’s vision for this initiative emphasizes its need-based approach, welcoming young musicians of all levels and ages. The program is designed to be a dynamic community project, fostering collaboration and growth among diverse participants. Whether you’re a budding talent or a seasoned musician, ORP provides a platform for all to explore the transformative power of music in a supportive and inclusive environment.

Midori’s involvement is central to ORP’s character. As a world-renowned violinist, she passionately mentors emerging talents and pushes the boundaries of classical music, inspiring our participants to new heights.

“Midori has a heart for everyone. It’s remarkable how she isn’t concerned about where you’re from or what level you’re at. She just wants to make a connection, share the moment, and go from one step to the next”

Mike Winer, CT-ASTA Past President
