Fremont Bank Foundation recently presented the Fremont Symphony Orchestra with a "Big" check of $15,000 as the Symphony's 2007-2008 Season Sponsor. A dedicated benefactor of the Symphony for several years, Foundation president Hattie Hughes noted how pleased the Foundation is to support such an important asset to Fremont and the Tri-City area.
"We are proud to have the Fremont Bank Foundation as a sponsor and a partner," said Dr. Douglas Treadway, president of the Fremont Symphony Board of Directors.
Selections from the Classical Top 40 will open the Symphony's 44th Season on September 22 with Mozart's Overture to The Marriage of Figaro, Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto with soloist David Southorn, Debussy's La Mer and the world premiere of work for erhu (Chinese violin) and orchestra. An Opening Night Gala Champagne Reception will be held just before the concert.
The 44th Season will showcase Glorious Strings in February with works by Schoenberg, Handel and Harrison. Audiences will enjoy the Best of Beethoven in March with celebrated pianist Jon Nakamatsu, and the ever-popular Pops Concert in May will highlight music of George Gershwin and Friends.

All performances are held in the Smith Center at Ohlone College.
The Fremont Bank Foundation also gave the Fremont Symphony Guild $10,000 in June to sponsor a concert of Latin jazz featuring Carlos Reyes and his exciting band of musicians and dancers on September 8 in the Ohlone College Amphitheater.
There will a private recital on October 21 featuring Concert Master Phil Santos of the Fremont Symphony Orchestra. A grand buffet and a silent auction are part of this special event.
