Welcome Spring!

Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center

Just a few days early, we welcome the coming of spring with a program of joy and budding potential. Assistant conductor Brandon Horrocks will conduct William Grant Still’s Festive Overture to open the concert and announce the coming happy season. Still is an important American composer and considered the “Dean of Black Composers,” writing over 150 compositions, many premiering in major music centers. Perhaps nothing defines spring and the coming green quite like Ralph Vaughan Williams A Lark Ascending. Filled with English charm, the work depicts its title most effectively, transporting the audience to the English countryside. Local violin virtuoso Kasia Sokol-Borup joins us as soloist. The program will be conducted by longtime Utah musical leader, Barbara Scowcroft. Maestra Scowcroft has chosen Brahms' 4th Symphony as the perfect ending to our welcome to spring. Brahms’s final work is perhaps his most controlled example of musical seeds blooming into life as a complete symphony.

Deep Imagination

Libby Gardner Concert Hall

Come explore the limitless musical imagination of composers with our varied April program. Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony, an orchestral favorite, is like a time capsule, a reimagining of modern music into old forms. We will also take a journey down the Moldau River in Smetana’s The Moldau (joined by some of Utah’s high school talent) and journey into the fantastical realms of King Solomon’s mind in Bloch’s Schelomo (with SLS principal cellist, Andrew Clement) and the entire orchestra takes us on a wild ride with a famous trickster, Til Eulenspriegel!

Family Outreach Concert: Tales from the Mist

Libby Gardner Concert Hall

We celebrate the diversity of composers and our audiences with our May Family concert. Tales from the Mist will take us into magical realms and even some real places, all composed by real people. It’s a story of US, the people that make up our human community. Appropriate for the whole family, this is a concert not to be missed!
