MELBOURNE – Aiko Goto is excited to be going home. The violinist has been a member of the Australian Chamber Orchestra since 1998 and it has been a while since she and her fellow musicians have visited Japan.
“We haven’t played there since 2011,” she says. “When I go back to Japan to visit family and play music festivals, my friends and family keep asking me, ‘When is the ACO coming back to play for us?'”
