Maestro stays: Tito’s lovin’ itmain
Both music director and CEO have signed simultaneous contract extensions at the Phoenix Symphony in its 70th anniversary year.
Tito Muñoz, former assistant conductor with the Cleveland Orchestra, is nearing the end of his fourth season and is looking to build. He says: ‘I look to grow artistically with the orchestra and our community and to continue to perform celebrated orchestral masterworks as well as music of our time, as we showcase upcoming works by young American composers.’
Jim Ward joined as a volunteer when the Symphony was going bust in 2010. Now driving record ticket sales he says, ‘We are just getting warmed up.’
