A season of return awaits! It feels great to be back. The 2022-2023 SLS season promises to be our first full season in three years! With pandemic protocols hopefully in our rear-view mirror, we are planning for a journey through some of the finest repertoire in the orchestral canon. If you’ve missed the big works by composers such as Richard Strauss, Shostakovich, Sibelius, Holst, and Brahms – we’ve got it covered. We also are returning to our established choral, concerto, and opera collaborations, with our friends at the Utah Voices and the University of Utah. Thrilling soloists also are back, including some from the ranks of our orchestra. The Vienna Ball also returns in February, a much-anticipated return by ballroom dancers and waltz lovers from across the region. We look forward to seeing you back in the audience as well, as we return to our roots ­– the inspiration that let to the group’s founding in 1976 – playing the great orchestral repertoire. You’ll find us performing in various places this season—from the new Mid Valley Arts Center, to the Grand Theater, to Libby Gardner Concert Hall. We are honored to truly be Salt Lake’s Symphony, bringing you great music since 1976.

See you at the concert!
