PHOENIX (July 26, 2023) The Phoenix Symphony announced that Boson Mo has been appointed as  concertmaster of The Phoenix Symphony, beginning with the 2023/2024 season. Boson will occupy the  Herberger Foundation Concertmaster Chair and will begin his tenure when the Symphony opens its season with  Carmina Burana in September.  

Boson Mo has been described as having “stunning intonation, impressive double stops, and an overall inspired  demeanor” by the Houston Chronicle. Prior to joining The Phoenix Symphony, Boson served as a member of the  Houston Symphony and recently served as Acting Assistant Concertmaster of the Vancouver Symphony  Orchestra. He toured Europe as part of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in 2022 and has also performed as  part of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.  

“We were privileged to have Boson serve as guest concertmaster for a Classics week last season,” said Tito  Muñoz, the Phoenix Symphony’s Virginia G. Piper Music Director. “Audiences in Phoenix will delight in his  spirited performances, exceptional artistry, and commitment to every note.” Muñoz added, “We also  appreciate Boson’s commitment to the Phoenix Symphony’s vital role in providing a broad range of  programming across the Valley.”  

Boson has been featured as Young Artist in Residence of American Public Media’s “Performance Today,” and has  been broadcast both nationally in the U.S. as well as internationally on Radio New Zealand and CBC Radio Canada. Boson was named as one of Canada’s “30 under 30 Top Classical Musicians of 2015” by CBC Radio Canada. He is a recipient of the “Prix Joseph-Rouleau” at the 2010 Montreal International Violin Competition as  well as a top 25 candidate at the 2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition and is a winner of Canada’s  prestigious Sylva Geber Foundation Award. A graduate of both the Cleveland Institute of Music and Rice  University’s Shepherd School of Music, Boson currently performs on a violin by MacArthur Genius Grant  recipient Joseph Curtin. 

“We are thrilled to welcome Boson Mo to The Phoenix Symphony following an extensive national search  process,” said Peter Kjome, Phoenix Symphony president and CEO.
