The Fresno Philharmonic initially booted its Digital Masterworks Series back in January 16th with its concert Intersections of Past and Present. Their trailer (below) confirmed there will be more installments, from tomorrow up until April, premiering on the 3rd Saturday at 5:30pm. All of these digital concerts will be free to watch on YouTube. Tomorrow’s digital concert is American Visions.
The varieties of American music are on display in this program combining new voices with Aaron Copland’s popular ballet score Appalachian Spring. Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman sets the stage for our musical exploration of American identity. We also celebrate Black History Month with compositions by Florence Price and Jasmine Barnes.
