Successful AWAM Concert by Japanese Accordionist Mihoko Goto - USA

AWAM
Mihoko GotoMihoko & ChiMihoko Goto performed a concert in October at AWAM. This “first” Japanese experience drew an audience of about a hundred people who greatly appreciated the musicianship of
Mihoko (picture above left) who literally danced around the stage.

Her program included concert pieces like Magnante’s "Accordion Boogie", Confrey’s "Dizzy Fingers", Piazzolla’s "Libertango", and even Bach’s "Toccata in D Minor". Her encore of "Dark Eyes" was an expansive version she had arranged.

Most pieces included improvisational sections she composed that showed off her technical skills, but more significantly, proved her ability to conceive music imaginatively and realize it through exceptionally controlled dynamics.

Mihoko also spoke about her studies in Japan. She has composed original pieces and set traditional Japanese tunes in contemporary styles, a few of which she played.

Mihoko became the accompanist when her friend Chiharu Ebihara (picture above right with white accordion) took the lead voice in two American West duets.

A repeat appearance is planned during the AWAM World Accordion Day Festival on May 2nd, 2020.
