SYMHNY Features Space-Themed Music

Premiere event fills MonOrchid with 200 patrons, 70 musicians

On May 24, the Phoenix Symphony under the baton of Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz joined forces with the team at True North Studio to transform the MonOrchid, a historic Roosevelt Row warehouse, into a satellite concert hall for the premiere of the SYMPHNY series. The sold-out audience of 200, along with more than 70 musicians, packed the venue.

As patrons arrived, they enjoyed a Phoenix Symphony string quartet, cocktails, photo booth and the artwork of Antoinette Cauley displayed in the gallery space. Muñoz constructed a dichotomy featuring the composer pair of Gustav Holst and John Williams. The program was naturally filled space-themed works, such as movements of Holsts’ The Planets and iconic works from Star Wars, more powerful than ever in the intimate space.

After the performance, guests were encouraged to stay and mingle with Phoenix Symphony musicians.
