For the first time in its 70-plus years, The Phoenix Symphony will stretch its traditional format with a series that brings the live musical experience to the heart of the Roosevelt Row Arts District. The inaugural performance, SYMPHNY: monOrchid, is happening on May 24 at monOrchid, located in Downtown Phoenix. The event is in collaboration with True North Studio, a real estate development company based in the monOrchid, and is expected to transport fans of both art and music alike.
“The Phoenix Symphony provides our city with dynamic performances.” says Jonathon Vento of True North Studio. “As huge supporters of the arts, we are thrilled to partner with Maestro Tito Muñoz and The Phoenix Symphony. At True North Studio we believe that when you experience the unexpected a new sense of creativity emerges. With monOrchid as the backdrop to this first performance it will truly be an unexpected experience.”
The performance at monOrchid, led by Tito Muñoz, Virginia G. Piper and music director, will feature The Phoenix Symphony in otherworldly selections from classical masterpieces like Holsts’ The Planets alongside iconic pieces from Star Wars and other space themed compositions.
“The Symphony is moving in a wonderful direction with this new series,” says Muñoz. “Given its colorful personality and artistic vibrancy, Roosevelt Row is the perfect place to kick off this project and we look forward to more innovative productions in the future.”
