Ward Stare and Jon Nakamatsu

The new season for your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra is about to begin.  RPO Music Director Ward Star and pianist Jon Nakamatsu stopped by our studios to chat with Classical 91.5 Music Director Julia Figueras. In their conversation, they talked about Rachmaninov as chamber music, Beethoven as  master of the dance, and the art of designing a season.

A Strong Memorial baby and Greece Arcadia grad, Julia Figueras is the Music Director and mid-day host for WXXI-FM. She is also the producer and host for the award-winning monthly interview/performance show, Backstage Pass.
