Noriko performs on the marimba in the Lewisville Lake International Chamber Series on January 29 at 7:30 p.m. The concert takes place at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 5500 Morriss Road in Flower Mound.
Recently, Noriko performed before the Imperial Family at their palace in Tokyo. Since winning the 1st prize of the Japan Classical Music Competition she has performed across Japan and in Belgium, Switzerland, France, Poland and the United States.
Born in Saitama, Japan, Noriko began her musical studies at age 3 on the piano. She started studying the marimba when she was 12 years old. Currently, she is continuing her studies at University of North Texas on a scholarship from the Meiji Yasuda Cultural Foundation.
The Concert is sponsored by the Lewisville Lake Symphony in cooperation with the University of North Texas. It is free to the public, although a donation to the Symphony is appreciated.
Noriko will play works by Debussy, Mikake and Espel as well as Keiko Abe’s “Variations on Japanese Children’s Songs.” For more concert details, driving directions and a video of her playing the marimba, go to www.lewisvillesymphony.org .
