The search for a music director for the Phoenix Symphony continues, as the orchestra opens their 66th Season at Symphony Hall. Last season an array of guest conductors led the orchestra in a successful season, and this year will bring more of the same: audiences will be treated to a number of the world’s best and brightest talented young maestros. This Friday and Saturday, Andrew Grams returns, after a triumphant 2011 debut, to lead the Phoenix Symphony in Beethoven’s 9th.
"The Sound Book-- The Science of the Sonic Wonders of the World" by Trevor Cox; "Cox is fascinated by room acoustics, and how places can be designed for speech, like classrooms, and beautiful music, like auditoriums and concert halls. you can’t help but get caught up in his enthusiasm-- He's Kind of like the Indiana Jones of Acoustic research and exploration." -Randy Kinkel
