I recently attended a Symphony concert last week. We are fortunate to have such high caliber of musicians here in Phoenix. I encourage everyone to get downtown to attend an upcoming event. We need to keep the arts going in our city!
Review from Guidestar
I have been lucky to attend multiple concerts by the Phoenix Symphony this season. In a time when arts organizations are struggling and in a city that does not have a large supportive arts community, it's great to the Phoenix Symphony still putting on excellent performances from Cirque to their latest Sibelius. As a young person I not only love the music, it's also a great night out downtown with wonderful people watching too!
This orchestra is a shell of its former self. Michael Christie is a terrible conductor. He is oblivious to the intonation problems, wrong notes, dynamics, balance etc. He is an embarrassment to our community. Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the nation and we have an orchestra that would rank among high school orchestras in other cities.
