One of the most dynamic conductors for me to watch, Yoshikazu Fukumura from Japan, returns once again to lead the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra in their concert on March 20, 2015, 8:00 PM at the Cultural Center of the Philippines’ Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater).

The concert lineup for the evening consists of Gioachino Rossini’s Overture from Semiramide, Franz Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 82 in C major, Hob. 1/82 The Bear, Maurice Ravel’s Ma mère l'oye, and Aram Khachaturian’s Masquerade Suite.

Recognized as one of the famous maestros in Japan, Yoshikazu Fukumura is the former music director of the Tokyo Ballet, Kyoto Municipal Symphony, and Nagoya Philharmonic. He received a national recognition in Japan for conducting the NHK TV Concert Series entitled ‘Music of the World’ in 1970. He has also conducted the Japan Philharmonic, New Japan Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, Tokyo Philharmonic, Yomiuri Japan Symphony, Osaka Philharmonic, Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, Gunma Symphony, Sapporo Symphony, Kyushu Symphony, and other well-acclaimed performances abroad, including Europe, Latin America, and in Asia. He has found a huge satisfaction in working with Asian orchestras - from making recordings to conducting festivals and subscription concerts in almost all parts of Asia. He was assigned as the first chief conductor of ASEAN Symphony Orchestra - consisting of 80 musicians carefully selected from some of the ASEAN countries, at the 17th ASEAN summit in Hanoi in October 2010 as supported by the Nippon Foundation.

Fukumura has been the Honorary Principal Guest Conductor of the Cuba National Symphony Orchestra since 1995.

Popular for conducting charity concerts, Yoshikazu Fukumura was appointed as the music director for the charity concert of the special orchestra in support to the Association of the Blind in Phnohm Penh, Cambodia in the same year.
