Director’s Message

Photo of Robert Baldwin Welcome to the 44th Season of the Salt Lake Symphony!

On behalf of all our musicians, I welcome you to the 44th Season of the Salt Lake Symphony A truly FANTASTIC year awaits, from Berlioz’s Symphony Fantastique to music of the jazz age. Our season runs the gamut from beloved light classics to monumental works and world premieres. You’ll recognize many of the composers: Copland, Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Gershwin, and Prokofiev. Others might be new to you: Ginastera, Franck, Peck, and Leavitt. But whatever the case, familiar or not, each concert will be an experience you’ll enjoy and not soon forget. We are dedicated to fostering the musicians and music being made right here in Utah, including premiering two works this season by Utah composers, John Costa and Kurt Bestor. Also joining us for several concerts will be first-rate soloists sharing the music of Duke Ellington. Ludwig van Beethoven, and more. Special family concerts and holiday fare promise something for the entire family, all season long. And don’t miss our Annual Vienna Ball on February 8th, where friends and lovers can dance the night away, and help support the orchestra!

Thank you for checking out this fine ensemble. This orchestra is a gem, truly special amongst community ensembles in the United States. This is YOUR symphony; your friends, neighbors, co-workers and teachers; all local musicians playing high-caliber music. The love and commitment is unparalleled. Come see what all the buzz is about. Come experience our art. You’ll be glad you did.
