life cycles

Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center Mid-Valley Performing Arts Center 2525 Taylorsville Blvd, Taylorsville

With the world once again open after the pandemic, we are reminded of cycles and returning. Join the Salt Lake Symphony as we travel to Taylorville with a varied program of old and new music. One of our cellists, originally from Venezuela, introduced our conductor to the wonderful piece, Margariteńa, by Venezuelan composer, Innocente Carreńo. Filled with Venezuelan rhythms and melodic material, this concert favorite from South America will soon to be a favorite with U.S. audiences as well. We are also happy to reprogram a new work for soprano and orchestra by Utah composer, John Costa, originally planned to be premiered in March of 2020. Based of poetry by selected poets, the piece comes across as a deep reflection and powerful statement of life. Closing the concert will be Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4, a cyclic masterpiece and orchestra player’s top choice. Tickets available at https://www.saltlakecountyarts.org/events/life-cycles/
