May the Force Be With Us! We’ll travel from ancient mythology to festivals on planet Earth. But the final
destination is hyperspace and musical selections from John Williams‘s incredible scores to Star Wars and
The Empire Strikes Back. Our special traveling companions include the talented players of the Rocky
Mountain Strings and invited Side-By-Side High School players.
Welcome to the 48th Season of YOUR Salt Lake Symphony! It is with great pleasure that I welcome and invite you to another fantastic season of music by one of the nation’s most dedicated volunteer orchestras. Many people tell me they are surprised this is not a professional orchestra, especially given the full schedule, major repertoire presented, and, most importantly, the quality of our performances. I always respond that we have the most dedicated orchestra I’ve ever worked with. The talent, focus, and enthusiasm are second to none.
This season will highlight known masterpieces and music “waiting in the wings” for you to experience. As always, we will highlight local Utah talent and look forward to doing our part to foster the future generation of musicians and music-lovers. We also look forward to an expanded presence during the summer, so be prepared to hear music in places you might not expect!
Like all creative ventures, it would not be possible without the support of our friends, patrons, and supporters. You can assist in many ways, from letting your friends know about our concerts, to making a tax-deductible gift. Please remember the joy you receive as we play music when considering your philanthropic gifts. It is certainly our joy to perform music for you!
