OIST 10th Anniversary Concert
On Saturday May 21, in partnership with the OIST Foundation, OIST paid tribute to this core vision with a one-of-a-kind concert. For the first time in history, four rare and precious violins, built over 300 years ago, were played solo in concert by a single musician. Three of the violins, built by famous master craftsman, Antonio Stradivari, were provided to OIST by Nippon Violin, while a fourth violin, made by another esteemed crafter, Guarneri Del Gesù, was provided by Dr. Toru Aso, General Director of Tokyo Cosmetic Surgery. The instruments were played by Eiko Kano, a New York-based, critically acclaimed violinist, who is the dedicated Music Ambassador for the OIST Foundation and Honorary Music Director for OIST.
