Musical Spotlight

Curated Classics 

Join us every other Monday at 6:30 p.m. AZ Time, beginning June 22 through August 17, for a New Series titled "Curated Classics" with our Virginia G. Piper Music Director Tito Muñoz. Invited guests to join him in a conversation providing curated insight to the classical programs from the 2019/20 season that could not be performed.

The bi-weekly conversations will cover the artistic ideas behind the programs curated by Maestro Muñoz, provide a connection between the pieces, the composers, approach to the music, and so much more.

Join the conversation on Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Each conversation will be paired with a playlist on Spotify/Apple Music/YouTube so that you can listen to the curated “concert” after the conversation.
