Marimbist Makoto Nakura caps off the season with the world premiere of Concerto for Marimba by American composer Benjamin C. S. Boyle. In 1994, Makoto Nakura moved from his native Japan to New York City, becoming the first marimbist to win First Prize in the prestigious Young Concert Artists International Auditions. His critically acclaimed performances around the world have included venues in London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires. Makoto Nakura marked his Canadian début with the Montreal Chamber Orchestra in 2013 and we are excited to have him with us once again in a concerto written specifically for him and the MCO!
