Director’s Message

Photo of Robert Baldwin Welcome to the 42nd Season of the Salt Lake Symphony. As music director of this fine ensemble, I am pleased to welcome you to another fantastic season of Salt Lake City’s premiere community ensemble. Long known for quality performances and exciting programs, the Salt Lake Symphony has once again planned an exciting season of classic standards as well as brand new music deserving to be heard. Be sure to attend our regular programs, but don't forget our family programs and special concerts as well. That’s the place where you can see audiences and players of all ages. Also, the Vienna Ball, our only fundraiser, has become the “go-to” event of the season for seasoned ballroom dancers and folks who just like to dress up for a night of dancing, no matter the skill level. Where else can you dance to a full symphony orchestra, playing some of the most beautiful music ever written?

Everything we do is focused on our people: the musicians, the students we work with, and of course, you, the audience! We tirelessly work towards making every concert a memorable musical event for all. We also pride ourselves at being the best value for classical music in the region. A concert costs less than an evening showing at the movie theater. (And you never regret attending!)

So, what have you got to lose? Join me and the SLS musicians this season to experience a unique cultural gem: Your Salt Lake Symphony!
