Happy holidays from Fresno Philharmonic and Rei Hotoda

I saw this come across my email box today and I wanted to pass it along. This will probably will be our last post for a while as we celebrate the holidays with friends and family. Whatever you do this year please remember to wear a mask, keep your distance, and stay home as much as possible!

Best wishes for a safe, happy and healthy holiday season. Thank you for your support this past year. We look forward to sharing music with you when our Digital Masterworks Series premieres in January. In the meantime, enjoy this musical holiday treat from the Fresno Philharmonic.
