Founded in 1940, the Utah Symphony has become a vital presence on the American music scene through its distinctive performances worldwide and its well-known recording legacy. The orchestra became recognized as a leading ensemble largely through the efforts of Maurice Abravanel, its Music Director from 1947 to 1979. Under his direction, the orchestra made its first recordings of works by Varese, Milhaud, Gottschalk, Honegger and Satie, as well as the first complete cycle of Mahler Symphonies. The Utah Symphony has its home in Maurice Abravanel Hall, which is acclaimed as one of the world’s great concert halls – having won awards for both its architecture and its extraordinary acoustics. With its many subscription, educational, and outreach concerts and tours, the Utah Symphony is one of the most engaged orchestras in the nation.
We are committed to providing a safe space for our artists to create as we resume performances this month. This requires updates to our programming to allow for physical distancing between artists. Discussions about the September – December performances are well underway and we will communicate program updates, including any changes to repertoire, dates, and seating options, to you in the coming weeks. Performance programming and schedules from January – May will also be subject to change based on the latest recommendations from health officials at that time. If you have tickets to an upcoming performance, our Patron Services team will be reaching out directly to answer any questions and discuss your attendance plans. Get more details here.
