One of the most recent artists of stellar distinction to join SFCMP, multi-percussionist Haruka Fujii has become one of the most prominent percussionists and marimbists of her generation. Since 2010 Haruka has performed as a member of the Grammy Award-winning Silk Road Ensemble, joining a group of international musicians founded by Yo-Yo Ma. Haruka’s passion for introducing audiences to new percussion music has put her on stage with diverse orchestras and performing groups: she has appeared as a soloist with the Munich Philharmonic, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Nationale de Lyon, and the NHK Symphony Orchestra. Her world premiere recordings can be found on the SONY, Kosei, ALM Records, and Deutsche Grammophon labels. Born in Saitama, Japan, Haruka studied music at the Tokyo National University, the Juilliard School, and the Mannes College of Music. After several seasons performing with us as a guest artist, she joined the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players in 2020.
