Director’s Message

Photo of Robert Baldwin Welcome to the 43rd Season of the Salt Lake Symphony!

Just a quick glance through the season repertoire will confirm that this is an orchestra that means business—and our business is bringing high quality symphonic performances to YOU, the music lovers of the Salt Lake Valley and the State of Utah. I am thrilled to begin my 14th season as music director of this outstanding ensemble of volunteer musicians. Volunteers, yes, but those who play with an amateur's enthusiasm at a professional level of commitment. Patrons often remark at how enjoyable and exciting our concerts are. Now it's your time to discover YOUR Salt Lake Symphony. So whether it’s beloved classics by Beethoven, energetic favorites by Stravinsky or a brand new work, written especially for this orchestra, you are in for a treat! Join us and discover our passion for music. It will soon become your passion as well!

Menotti Amahl and the Night Visitors
Leavitt and Buck A Christmas Carol

Two inspiring events await our audiences to ring in the holiday season. The SLS is collaborating with the University of Utah Lyric Opera Ensemble to present Menotti’s beloved Christmas opera: Amahl and the Night Visitors. This will be presented as a double-bill with Utah composer Michael Leavitt’s new setting of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. With four performances to choose from (November 29 – December 1) this performance allows flexibility for your busy schedule with room to remember the spirit of the season.

The orchestra will also present Christmas favorites on December 15th in “Christmas Through the Ages.” Holiday favorites like Tchaikovsky’s Overture from The Nutcracker, Corelli’s Christmas Concerto, and Leroy Anderson’s Sleigh Ride are sure to help even the grinchiest Grinch experience plenty of holiday cheer! Happy Holidays from YOUR Salt Lake Symphony!
