For Jon Nakamatsu, performing in Rochester has been "a lot of fun," as can be seen by his career. Since his first appearance with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in January 1999, the prizewinning pianist has returned time after time, performing as a soloist with the RPO and as a chamber musician with the Society for Chamber Music.
