Violinist Midori will be given the prestigious Crystal Award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on 25 January 2012. The award is in recognition of Midori’s 20-year devotion to community engagement work worldwide.
“I’m very excited to be receiving the Crystal Award,” says Midori, “It serves as an encouragement for my future work. I greatly look forward to meeting the World Economic Forum’s community of socially conscious world leaders at Davos.”
The World Economic Forum bestows the Crystal Award on artists who have used their art and influence to contribute to international society. Winners of the Award in previous years have included cellist Yo-Yo Ma, “El Sistema” founder Jose A. Abreu, and Indian dancer Mallika Sarabhai.
