The Sapporo Symphony Orchestra – Hokkaido’s only professional orchestra, affectionately known as “Sakkyo” and including 12 PMF alumni among their members – will perform at the PMF Host City Orchestra Concert! Kentaro Kawase, who served as PMF Assistant Conductor in 2007-09 and is now Sakkyo’s Resident Conductor will lead a program featuring Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony! Serving as concerto soloist is Denis Bouriakov, principal flute of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and a PMF alumni himself, having in recent years returned to serve as a faculty member of PMF AMERICA. Together, Kawase and Bouriakov will bring Kevin Puts’ Flute Concerto to the PMF stage for the first time – all in all a Sakkyo concert only possible at PMF!
