Utah Symphony Presents AMERICA'S WONDERS IN 3D

Utah Symphony Presents AMERICA'S WONDERS IN 3D

For the first time ever in cutting-edge LED 3D, experience America's most breathtaking natural wonders and bustling cities, paired with live classical and contemporary compositions played live by the Utah Symphony led by Utah Symphony Associate Conductor Conner Gray Covington. This one-night special event will be held on November 19th commemorating the 100th anniversary of President Woodrow Wilson establishing Zion National Park. Tickets start at $30 and can be purchased at or by calling 801-533-6683.

Audience members will be taken on a journey through 28 of America's most breathtaking national parks - including all five of Utah's Mighty Five™ national parks - and eleven of our most exciting cities. 3D glasses will be handed out before patrons enter the concert hall.

Experience the wonder of watching the sunrise over the Grand Canyon while listening to Grofé's "Grand Canyon Suite" and flying over the Appalachian Mountains as the Utah Symphony performs Copland's "Appalachian Spring." Continue your journey into our nation's vibrant cities as tenor Adam Fisher and the orchestra perform "New York, New York" as you walk through New York's Times Square, "Viva Las Vegas" as you experience the thrill and lights of Las Vegas, and "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" as you virtually stroll across the Golden Gate Bridge.

"America's Wonders in 3D" is part of Utah Symphony's efforts to combine exciting symphonic programming and immersive cinematic experiences in the concert hall. The 2019-20 Films in Concert series opened September 6 & 7 with the action-packed, "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back," followed by Disney and Pixar's "Coco" on November 1 & 2. It continues with "Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix™ In Concert," the fifth Harry Potter film in the series, on December 20 and 21; the hit movie musical, "Singin' in the Rain," will follow on February 28 and 29; "How to Train Your Dragon" comes flying onto the big screen on April 14; and the sixth Harry Potter film in the series, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince™ In Concert," will conclude this year's Films in Concert series on June 19, 20 and 21.

Also new on the 2019-20 season is UNWOUND, a casual classical experience with up close video footage of the conductor and guest artist that was introduced during the 2018-19 season. UNWOUND features shorter, intermission-free programs with activities, food, and drink in the lobby and on the plaza prior to the concert; and mingling and a Q&A with artists after the concert. This two show series kicked off with "Rhapsody in Blue" on November 15, which featured award-winning concert pianist Kevin Cole and will conclude with one of classical music's greatest spectacles, the shocking and thrilling "Carmina Burana" of Carl Orff on March 28 at Abravanel Hall.
