Violin Day

Today the Liv Northgate Blog is celebrating Violin Day on December 13th with a few performances from the Phoenix Symphony. The Phoenix Symphony has been entertaining audiences in the Gilbert, AZ area since the 1940s. Violin Day is a celebration of one of our favorite instruments, so it only makes sense that we would feature our favorite symphony to celebrate. The three events we are featuring are just a sampling at the events coming to the Phoenix Symphony next month. We encourage you to look at the calendar now and get your tickets before they sell out — they go pretty fast. We know you’ll have a great time attending an event next year.

Simple Sinatra

January 14015, 2017

“Journey to the timeless era when The Chairman of the Board ruled the stage. Sensational vocalist Steve Lippia returns to The Phoenix Symphony for this popular tribute to the music of Frank Sinatra. In an evening dedicated to Ol’ Blue Eyes, enjoy favorites like “Luck be a Lady,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “My Way” and more.”


A Night of Leonard Bernstein

January 20-21, 2017

“Music Director Tito Muñoz leads a distinctly American program dedicated to the late composer, conductor, educator and humanitarian Leonard Bernstein. The concert is highlighted by Bernstein’s popular Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, and also explores the range and depth of the composer’s work. Opening with Divertimento, a lighthearted reflection of the composer’s storied relationship with The Boston Pops, the program also includes selections from the Bernstein archive including the choral work, Chichester Psalms, and Three Meditations from Mass, featuring The Phoenix Symphony’s principal cellist, Melita Hunsinger. “
