Tito Muñoz: From NYC to Omaha Symphony’s Stage
January 8th, 2024
Renowned conductor Tito Muñoz’s musical journey began in the dynamic city of New York, where he first immersed himself in violin training and string orchestra during his middle school years within the public school system. Muñoz attributes his remarkable achievements in the music realm to the vibrant and diverse surroundings of his upbringing in the Big Apple. These formative experiences laid the groundwork for his illustrious career, shaping his musical aspirations.
Despite hailing from a non-musical background, Munoz received unwavering support from his family in pursuing his musical dreams. He occasionally draws intriguing parallels between his role as a conductor and high-ranking positions in other professional fields, recognizing both the differences and similarities in the pathways to success.
Approximately a decade ago, Muñoz made his inaugural visit to Omaha as a guest conductor, fostering a strong bond with the Omaha Symphony. This connection has flourished, leading to a special invitation for Munoz to return for an exceptional evening of music.
This Friday and Saturday, the concert at the Omaha Symphony commences with Sensemaya by Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas, followed by Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 “Emperor,” featuring acclaimed pianist Michelle Cann. The second half of the evening will showcase Stravinsky’s renowned masterpiece, Petrushka.
