Win tickets to Fresno Philharmonic’s season-opener concert
You can win a pair of tickets to the Fresno Philharmonic’s first Masterworks concert of the season, billed as “Curtain Up: Bernstein & Strauss” (3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, Saroyan Theatre). The program includes Rei Hotoda conducting Bernstein’s vivacious “Candide” and Strauss’ “Der Rosenkavalier,” along with Vivian Fung’s “Earworms” (a feisty and whimsical orchestral piece depicting the distractions and multitasking of contemporary life) and guest artist Cecile Licad on piano, who joins the orchestra for Saint-Saëns’ brilliant Piano Concerto No. 2.
