Welcome to the 2013-14 Salt Lake Symphony Season! Since 1976, the SLS has served as the premiere community orchestral ensemble in the Salt Lake region. Now in our 38th season, we are more engaged than ever in bringing high quality music and educational programs to the area. Come check us out this season and see soloists from your own neighborhoods: Utah Symphony leaders such as Ralph Matson and John Eckstein, Monika Jalili our own SLS principal flutist Christina Castellanos, the U of U Opera Theatre and The Utah Voices are just a sampling of the highlights. But also take note of the ensemble of over 100 of your neighbors dedicated to preserving and presenting the finest in symphonic music. We engage the community in exciting and unique ways. You will hear music by Utah's Henry Wolking alongside an established masterpiece by Brahms. You will hear Iranian melodies juxtaposed with music by Rimsky-Korsakov. You will hear opera, sung by rising student stars, alongside favorite Christmas carols. You will hear the known and the unknown, from J.S. Bach to Amy Beach. We pride ourselves as an ensemble that reaches for new heights and willing to take risks for our audience. I know of no community orchestra in the United States that displays this level of talent, dedication and musical depth. See you at the show!

What's in a story? What's in a tune? Come to our annual Family Fun concert to find out! We will be joined by talents from Plan B Theatre to present a unique presentation of Prokofiev's timeless classic, Peter and the Wolf. But that's just the start. The symphonic stories will also include music from The Chronicles of Narnia, Scheherazade, and a Great Train Race--right across the Libby Gardner Stage. This is a concert appropriate for all ages!
