Arizona Cardinals all pro wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald constantly gets credit for being well-rounded and a classy kind of guy.

Fox Sports Arizona is reporting that Fitzgerald will display another facet of his game on September 20 when he leads the Phoenix Symphony in the National Anthem in what is being called a once in a lifetime performance, showcasing the best of sports and music.

Fitzgerald spoke about his excitement for the opportunity.

“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.”

Fitzgerald will get a brief rehearsal with the symphony this coming Tuesday.

“I’ve been to a lot of symphonies and operas, so I know the gist of it,” he said. “But that’s not the same as doing it. It’s my first time. I want to make sure I know what I’m doing.”
“Everybody knows the Phoenix Symphony is one of the best in the country,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s a tremendous honor that they’d want me to be a part of it.”

Expect Fitzgerald to apply the same professionalism to the symphony that he does to his day job.

    He has nothing to worry about. The symphony will not be paying attention to him anyway.
