ON THIS DAY | Happy Birthday, Violinist Mayuko Kamio!

Mayuko, an Osaka native, is a major prizewinner and prominent soloist

Today is Japanese virtuoso violinist Mayuko Kamio’s 35th birthday!

A student of Dorothy DeLay, Masao Kawasaki, and Zakhar Bron, Mayuko is a former first prize winner at the Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition, Menuhin International Violin Competition, and the Young Concert Artists International Auditions. She was born in Osaka, Japan and has soloed with many major orchestras around the world since her concerto debut in Tokyo at age 10 under the baton of Charles Dutoit.

Mayuko was one of three people who were the subjects of the 2003 documentary "Playing for Real" — a film about the difficulties in establishing a career in classical music.

She currently performs on the 1735 "Sennhauser" made by Joseph Guarneri del Gesu, kindly offered by the Stradivari Society in Chicago.
