World-renowned violinist Midori puts down her violin for an evening to pick up a microphone and deliver the 2006 Michelin Distinguished Visitors Lecture.

Midori best known as one of the world's leading violinists, performs over 100 concerts throughout the world each season. She is also a dedicated champion of education, having founded several separate non-profit organizations conducting outreach activities, especially with youth.

The Michelin Distinguished Visitors Lecture Series was established in 1992 by New York designer Bonnie Cashin in memory of her uncle, James Michelin, a consulting engineer, who had always hoped to attend Caltech. Previous speakers in this series have included architectural critic Vincent Scully, artist David Hockney, playwright Tom Stoppard, architect Frank Gehry, director Oliver Stone, opera singer Beverly Sills, poet Seamus Heaney, and authors Michael Crichton, Herman Wouk and Walter Mosley. The purpose of these lectures is to promote creative interaction between the arts and sciences.
