Sunday Classical Concert

Harpists Kayo Ishimaru and Richard Fleisher to perform at The Cummer!

Event Details:
September 22, 2013 - September 22, 2013
1:30 p.m.
Location: The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens - Hixon Auditorium

                       

Sunday Classical Concerts are a favorite at The Cummer and a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This Sunday the concert will feature music by husband and wife team Richard Fleisher and Kayo Ishimaru. Both Fleisher and Ishimaru are principal harpist for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra respectively. With the recent opening of The Cummer Sculpture Garden, we thought featuring music performed with the harp would be fitting as the Harp is a beautiful piece of sculpture in its own right. Also, as Frank Zappa once said, "Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something." 

Kayo Ishimaru attended the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and the Conservatoire national Superieur de Musique de Paris where she graduated with Premier Prix in 1983.

When Ishimaru is not performing with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, she performs with the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra in Chicago during the summer months. Ishimaru has performed with all of the major orchestras in Japan including the NHK Symphony, the Japan Philharmonic and the Tokyo Philharmonic. She has appeared in numerous television and radio programs, and has made recordings in both the United States and Japan. In August of 2005, Ishimaru was invited to play memorial concerts in Japan for the 60th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ishimaru is currently a member of the St. Johns Chamber Players. 

Richard Fleisher, principal harp for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra began studying the harp at age 10. His first teacher was his grandmother, Nettie Druzinsky, who was the accompanist for fan dancer Sally Rand. 

After graduating from the University of Miami, Fleisher joined the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Miami City Ballet Orchestra. Fleisher as the principal harpist with the Nagoya (Japan) Symphony and the Orchestra of the Mineria (Mexico). He is the son of pianist Leon Fleisher and nephew of Edward Druzinsky, formal principal harpist with the Chicago Symphony. Fleishern's two sisters are harpists in Miami and Washington. Fleisher's latest recording is entitled The Enchanted Oboe with Andrew Snedeker, oboe, and James Cochran, keyboard.

Sunday Classical Concerts are a favorite at The Cummer and a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This Sunday the concert will feature music by husband and wife team Richard Fleisher and Kayo Ishimaru. Both Fleisher and Ishimaru are principal harpist for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra respectively. With the recent opening of The Cummer Sculpture Garden, we thought featuring music performed with the harp would be fitting as the Harp is a beautiful piece of sculpture in its own right. Also, as Frank Zappa once said, "Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something." 

Kayo Ishimaru attended the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and the Conservatoire national Superieur de Musique de Paris where she graduated with Premier Prix in 1983.

When Ishimaru is not performing with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, she performs with the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra in Chicago during the summer months. Ishimaru has performed with all of the major orchestras in Japan including the NHK Symphony, the Japan Philharmonic and the Tokyo Philharmonic. She has appeared in numerous television and radio programs, and has made recordings in both the United States and Japan. In August of 2005, Ishimaru was invited to play memorial concerts in Japan for the 60th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ishimaru is currently a member of the St. Johns Chamber Players. 

Richard Fleisher, principal harp for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra began studying the harp at age 10. His first teacher was his grandmother, Nettie Druzinsky, who was the accompanist for fan dancer Sally Rand. 

After graduating from the University of Miami, Fleisher joined the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Miami City Ballet Orchestra. Fleisher as the principal harpist with the Nagoya (Japan) Symphony and the Orchestra of the Mineria (Mexico). He is the son of pianist Leon Fleisher and nephew of Edward Druzinsky, formal principal harpist with the Chicago Symphony. Fleishern's two sisters are harpists in Miami and Washington. Fleisher's latest recording is entitled The Enchanted Oboe with Andrew Snedeker, oboe, and James Cochran, keyboard.  

Free to members, free to non-members with paid musuem admission. For more information, please call 904.899.6038. Please remember, we do not mail tickets for concerts, we check your name at the door the day of the event.

Sunday Classical Concerts are a favorite at The Cummer and a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon. This Sunday the concert will feature music by husband and wife team Richard Fleisher and Kayo Ishimaru. Both Fleisher and Ishimaru are principal harpist for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra respectively. With the recent opening of The Cummer Sculpture Garden, we thought featuring music performed with the harp would be fitting as the Harp is a beautiful piece of sculpture in its own right. Also, as Frank Zappa once said, "Music, in performance, is a type of sculpture. The air in the performance is sculpted into something." 

Kayo Ishimaru attended the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and the Conservatoire national Superieur de Musique de Paris where she graduated with Premier Prix in 1983.

When Ishimaru is not performing with the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, she performs with the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra in Chicago during the summer months. Ishimaru has performed with all of the major orchestras in Japan including the NHK Symphony, the Japan Philharmonic and the Tokyo Philharmonic. She has appeared in numerous television and radio programs, and has made recordings in both the United States and Japan. In August of 2005, Ishimaru was invited to play memorial concerts in Japan for the 60th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ishimaru is currently a member of the St. Johns Chamber Players. 

Richard Fleisher, principal harp for the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra began studying the harp at age 10. His first teacher was his grandmother, Nettie Druzinsky, who was the accompanist for fan dancer Sally Rand. 

After graduating from the University of Miami, Fleisher joined the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra and the Miami City Ballet Orchestra. Fleisher as the principal harpist with the Nagoya (Japan) Symphony and the Orchestra of the Mineria (Mexico). He is the son of pianist Leon Fleisher and nephew of Edward Druzinsky, formal principal harpist with the Chicago Symphony. Fleishern's two sisters are harpists in Miami and Washington. Fleisher's latest recording is entitled The Enchanted Oboe with Andrew Snedeker, oboe, and James Cochran, keyboard.
