We are so thrilled to once again partner with FOOSA Festival/Fresno Summer Orchestra Academy! June 25 marks the end of the FOOSA performance season and kicks of the Summer Arts festival.

The Fresno Opera and Orchestra Summer Academy (FOOSA) enters its fifth season on the Fresno State campus. Led by Artistic Director Dr. Thomas Loewenheim, FOOSA is a partnership between Youth Orchestras of Fresno and Fresno State’s College of Arts and Humanities.

FOOSA brings together internationally significant teaching artists, internationally and nationally successful music students, locally significant teaching artists, Fresno State music students, and young musicians from throughout the Central Valley in a uniquely fertile confluence of teaching, learning, and performance intended to increase the Valley’s international cultural footprint.

The culminating concert will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, June 25, at Roosevelt High School. Students and faculty sit side-by-side performing as one.

This is your chance to hear local and nationally significant teaching artists and students play together – including Fresno State students and young musicians throughout the Central Valley. There is truly nothing else like it.

Sunday’s classical music concert will feature the work of Strauss, Mahler, and a commissioned work by Fresno State alum Joseph Bohigian. This is something you don’t want to miss.
