The three talented Furuya Sisters — cellist Mimi, pianist Sakiko, and violinist Harumi — were each a child prodigy, with Harumi beginning her studies at age 2, and Mimi and Sakiko making their respective debuts at age 8. Their original compositions have been performed many times at Juilliard.
All graduates of the Juilliard School, the Furuya Sisters have gone on to further studies at universities such as the Eastman School of Music, the Robert Schumann Hochschule in Düsseldorf, Germany, the Mozarteum and the University of Salzburg in Austria, Harvard University, Sciences Po Paris, Humboldt University, and University of Cambridge.
