PHOENIX (April 23, 2024) The Phoenix Symphony is celebrating Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz with a series of events, called Tito’s 10th: A Grand Finale, as the internationally acclaimed conductor concludes his final season as the Symphony’s conductor.

After 10 years as the artistic leader of the Phoenix Symphony, Muñoz’s tenure is one of the longest in the organization’s history.

“The Phoenix Symphony is thrilled to celebrate Tito Muñoz’s leadership and important contributions during his tenure as Music Director,” said Peter Kjome, President and CEO. “Tito has helped to advance the orchestra’s artistic excellence while also continuing to foster our community engagement and education programs that enrich the lives of thousands of people in Phoenix and Arizona each year.”

Praised for his versatility, technical clarity, and keen musical insight, Muñoz is recognized as one of the most gifted conductors on the podium today. As a proponent of new music, Muñoz founded The Phoenix Symphony’s REVERB festival, which celebrates newly composed music through some of contemporary classical music’s most respected living composers and performers.

Under the leadership of Muñoz, the Phoenix Symphony has expanded its relationship with leading institutions such as Arizona State University. Muñoz has enjoyed a regular partnership with ASU where he has held a faculty position and is a frequent guest teacher and conductor. It is anticipated that the Symphony’s emphasis on collaboration, including its work with ASU, will continue as part of ongoing efforts to foster innovation and growth.
