I have seen Prokofievs' 7th and the New World Symphony performed by the Orchestra in the last year. Both provided great music and a unique experience. The music was varied and well performed.

I really love going to listen to classical music. Performance featured a beautiful violin soloist. Abravanel Hall is beautiful. Most seats are good. Did not like sitting in side seating with my husband because it meant he was seated behind my instead of beside me.

We attended the Symphony's Halloween Hi-Jinx performance and it was amazing. All of your scary, spooky songs performed by the symphony all decked out in costumes with audience participation. Fun times! Even the kids liked it!

Just walking into the building is worth it. It is beautiful. Getting to hear the symphony is a bonus. The building is designed for music and every seat has perfect sound.

Not many communities have the luxury to have such a fine symphony. The building has fine acoustics, so go listen, you will be glad you did. Yes, it is that simple.

The Utah Symphony is unique. For a small arts market, they bring quality in every instrument - partially because Mormons love to make their kids practice something growing up. I enjoy the Messiah done around Christmastime.

My husband and I saw video games live performed by the Utah Symphony. This symphony is extremely talented and definitely worth a visit! They were captivating and silly at times (after all, it was video games...)

The Utah Symphony does an annual Music Festival at Snow Park in Deer Valley and it is always good, even when the main act (Kenny Rogers) is not. Worth going -- sitting on the lawn under the stars, hearing great music is wonderful!

I have attended two evenings here; the Four Seasons with an excellent travelling soloist, and Pictures at an Exhibition. Music has been excellent, the space was inviting and relaxing, and I can't believe how reasonable the tickets were. Salt Lake does an amazing job bringing the arts to the west, impressive for such a small and new city.

I’m going to comment on the UT Symphony, which requires a comparison to other orchestra’s I have heard live (recordings provide no comparison to live concert), so let me start by giving you a list of some of my comparison events, orchestra listed first, conductor in (): Cleveland(Szell); Chicago (Ogawa, Solti); Vienna Philharmonic (Boehme); Berlin Philharmonic (von Karajan); Philadelphia (Ormandy);...
