The Phoenix Symphony continues to mix the classic "crowd pleasers" with innovative new programs. The recent "Nixon in China" performance was fantastic. Michael Christie and the symphony were in top form, the singers acted out the opera wonderfully - and there was a fascinating and informative video montage of actual footage from Nixon's visit to China in 1972. The night was as educational as it was entertaining. Congratulations to Maestro Michael Christie for continuing to innovate with the Phoenix Symphony.
