Utah Symphony Enlists Young Musicians for 54th Annual Salute to Youth Concert, 10/1
Nine of Utah's most talented young musicians will perform classical works from music greats including Beethoven, Puccini and Mozart on stage at Abravanel Hall in the Utah Symphony's 54th annual Salute to Youth concert on Tuesday, October 1 at 7 pm.
In an annual Utah tradition that dates back to the days of Maestro Maurice Abravanel, this year's concert features three pianists, two violinists, one cellist, one harpist and two sopranos, ranging in age from 12 to 19. They will perform movements from concertos regularly played by professional soloists, such as Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto, and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-sharp minor, and Beethoven's Triple Concerto in C Major - which was performed by Utah Symphony's guest artists on the season's opening night concert.
The Salute to Youth concert launches the Utah Symphony's Youth Guild program with sign up and information in the lobby of Abravanel Hall. The guild allows music students greater involvement with the arts and opportunities to support the symphony through volunteer service - including ushering and coat check - and education activities such as backstage seminars, pre-concert lectures, open rehearsals and Masterclasses. Membership is open to families with children ages 8 to 18. While the Youth Guild encourages everyone to reap the many benefits of learning to play an instrument, membership is open to musicians and non-musicians alike.
Single tickets for the performance range from $6 to $18 and can be purchased by phone at (801) 355-2787, in person at the Abravanel Hall ticket office (123 W. South Temple) or online by visiting www.utahsymphony.org. Season subscribers and those desiring group discounts should call (801) 533-6683. All ticket prices are subject to change and availability. Ticket prices are subject to change and will increase $3 when purchased on the day of the performance.
