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);...

The Utah Symphony, aside from the Utah Opera and the Utah Film Center, is my absolutely most favorite place to go on a weekend. The music director, Thierry Fisher, is absolutely phenomenal. There is no piece he cannot do. The orchestra is likewise absolutely phenomenal. I like that the orchestra sports some very young faces. It shows that the orchestra... More

I really enjoyed the symphony. Great venue and musicians. It was a good change for date night. As always, parking is not the greatest or very clear and easy.

Have attended dozens of their music concerts. Always well performed. Selection of music is varied, so there is something for everyone during the course of the season. Handy to get to. Also, feature outdoor performances during the summer, which is fun.

What can you say about the Utah Symphony. Founded under the direction of Maurice Abravanel in the 1940's, this orchestra is a musical institution in Salt Lake City. Whether a Pops program under the direction of Pops Conductor Jerry Steichen, or a classical or contemporary performance, this well-oiled group of professional musicians will not let you down!

My husband and I love the symphony and I am a cellist. So we love to see them play. Great show, far from a waste of time.
