When you are Larry Fitzgerald, you get to do whatever you want , more or less. He has done so much in his relatively young life and has ambitions of doing so much more. Some of the things he has already done. On Thursday, he will be a guest conductor for the Phoenix Symphony.
It serves him and the Symphony both. He gets to do something cool and people will go to the Symphony just to see him conduct.
Fitzgerald said he was approached by team president Michael Bidwill one day, and Bidwill asked him if he would be interested in conducting the Symphony, to which Fitzgerald replied "absolutely," and the rest is history.
"I was really excited when he [Mr. Bidwill] talked to me about it, and I was looking forward to it ever since," Fitzgerald said.
Ward says the word of mouth to Fitzgerald's debut as special guest conductor on Thursday night has "spread like wildfire," which would naturally please him, because it shows that people have caught on and are really interested in coming out to see Fitzgerald, and a great performance from the Symphony.
With the popularity of the NFL, it is good to see the Cardinals using that for good.
