The FOOSA Philharmonic Orchestra is back for its 10th anniversary with top musicians playing alongside top high school and college student musicians in a unique music festival that brings the world to Fresno.
This performance will feature the Concerto Competition winners with the full orchestra. The performance will be held in the Fresno State Concert Hall and is free and open to the public.
Every summer, top student musicians, from high school through the graduate level, audition for a chance to learn from the faculty musicians from around the world for two weeks of intensive training that features a concerto competition and culminates in world-class concert performances.
The FOOSA Philharmonic is a pre-professional orchestra that allows advanced musicians of college and high school age to enjoy a side-by-side performance experience with outstanding faculty members. Students enjoy daily private lessons, daily orchestra rehearsals, and sectional and recital opportunities with the full-time immersion program. This year’s experience also includes a professional orchestral recording session in addition to the two Fresno performances. FOOSA is a partnership between Fresno State and the Youth Orchestra of Fresno.
