The FOOSA Philharmonic performs the little-known-but-suddenly-popular (and riproaring!) Symphony No. 2 by Alfredo Casella, as well as Der Rosenkavalier, by Richard Strauss. Cellist Lynn Harrell will solo in Bruch’s Kol Nidrei. Fresno composer Mason Lamb’s Solstice, created for this occasion, will be premiered.
The FOOSA Philharmonic combines renowned faculty members with student participants to create an orchestra of exceptional ability with an unmistakably youthful flair and energy. Artistic Director Thomas Loewenheim conducts.
