"Every great symphony must first start with a great conductor," Partridge says.  "Dmitry amazed both our musicians and audience as a visiting guest conductor with his brilliant talent and masterful skills as he conducted our spring concerts.  He received numerous standing ovations and tremendous enthusiastic applause from our audience. It was an exciting moment for all of us who were there.

"Our orchestra members have expressed their enjoyment in performing under the baton of our new and exciting musical leader," Partridge continues. "We feel his skills as a conductor enhances our abilities to perform at our highest level.

"The vision of creating the Scottsdale Philharmonic into a major symphony in Arizona is just beginning," Partridge explains. "Because Maestro Polyakov is a key figure in building our future and lead us to a treasury of classical musical, we created the 'Conductor's Circle Sponsorship' program.  Contributions to this program will allow us to develop our new vision of a first class symphony in Scottsdale and build a great symphonic orchestra and perform unforgettable concerts. He is a leader that we are excited to have for our future."
