Akiko Fujimoto Leads The Nutcracker: Russian Ballet And Italian Baroque On Tap For Symphony
Akiko Fujimoto is the assistant director of the San Antonio Symphony and her duties include giving pre-concert talks, knowing the repertory just in case (called cover conductor), conducting educational and pops concerts, and this year leading a new series of baroque concerts with musicians of the San Antonio Symphony. All of that happens to overlap this week with performances of the Nutcracker.
With nine services with Ballet San Antonio, we were very happy that Akiko made time to talk about ballet, baroque and repeating repertory (she also spoke with Gerald Self for Musica Antiqua!).
