Event Description

The Fresno Philharmonic presents the world premiere of a new work by California composers Hitomi Oba and Erika Oba inspired by the life and writings of Fresno author and organic peach farmer David “Mas” Masumoto. This performance is the culmination of a two-year project called Cultural Crossroads: Kisetsu (“Seasons” in Japanese). Pianist Barry Douglas returns to the Fresno Philharmonic for Rachmaninoff’s beloved Piano Concerto No. 2.  The concert concludes with Shostakovich’s light-hearted Symphony No. 9.
