Music Director Tito Munoz 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, yet the afternoon 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 own principal cellist, Melita Hunsinger.
