Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald To Conduct Phoenix Symphony

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has been performing well on the field. Is it time for him to start doing a little performing of his own off the field?

Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona repots that Fitzgerald will be conducting the National Anthem on Sept. 20 in what the Phoenix Symphony is calling "a once-in-a-lifetime performance that showcases the best of sports and music." This is the opening night of the season for the Phoenix Symphony.

Fitz talks a little bit about how he's been prepping himself for this one. Check out the quote after the jump.

“I’m definitely going to go out there and give it my best shot,” Fitzgerald said. “I’ve been watching YouTube videos of conductors late into the night to see what they actually do. I don’t want to make a fool of myself.”

Also performing on Opening Night will be guest conductor Sarah HIcks and violinist Elena Urioste. The program includes dances from "West Side Story," "The Overture to Candide" and Beethoven's "Violin Concerto."
