SUMMER STRING FESTIVAL ALUMNUS RETURNS AS GUEST CONDUCTOR
Tito Muñoz, Music Director of the Phoenix Symphony, will join the Summer String Festival as a guest conductor next week. In addition to sharing his artistic brilliance with our students, Muñoz will be conducting the New York Philharmonic and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
“EMS holds a truly special place in my heart,” says Muñoz, who was a counselor at Summer String Festival in the late 1990s. “I remember being so blown away by the program, and by the enthusiasm of everyone — the teachers, the staff, the students, the parents, and especially Amelia [Gold, Associate Head of School and Director of the Arts]. There was such a positive and nurturing atmosphere, and it was clearly allowing everyone to thrive and perform at their absolute best. I can’t say enough about how highly I think of EMS and Amelia, and I love seeing the program grow every single year. My heart sings every time I return to visit, and I’m SO looking forward to being back again this summer!”
