We took our 3 kiddos (ages 2, 5, 8) to the whole concert series and they looked forward to each and every one of them! It was so nice to see them understanding the instruments and music each time...and the best part about it was that when it was over, they asked when they'd get to go back. We loved... More

We live closer to San Francisco, but choose to go to Salt Lake City for cultural events. The Utah Symphony is fabulous!! We just saw the Midtown Men perform with them. It was outstanding!! We are looking forward to another performance again soon.

My whole life I have never gotten into the story of Peter Pan...until this past Saturday. I had never heard the original words of the story, which were beautiful and transporting. To hear Utah Symphony playing the music to Hook while a narrator read the story was nothing short of phenomenal. I gave it a standing ovation--which I rarely do,... More

We recently enjoyed Peter Pan and Other Adventures. We thought it was great. They made it enjoyable for kids as well, one of the fables they had artwork done by a local elementary as they told the story. For Peter Pan they had this exceptional narrator as the music played. I look forward to seeing/hearing more.

This year we took our 6 year old granddaughter to several of the concerts in the Lollipop series and gave her tickets for 2 performances so her mom could take her as well. They are held around noon on a Saturday and last just an hour. They always have some extras like narrators, illustrations, etc. This year the 5th graders... More

My wife and I went to see them on friday. We both really enjoyed the symphony, the guest performers were ok but definitely showed up by the symphony. We are already planing another visit soon. I would highly recomend them if you are in salt lake city.

The family series is perfect for kids and adults, whether you're familiar with classical music or not. The program, the venue, and the quality of music is just top-notch.

While I am fairly new to the experience of live classical music, my husband is not. He grew up in Los Angeles California and has been to Europe and visited some of the world renowned music halls. He enthusiastically endorses the Utah Symphony and we have been season subscribers for the last four years, and plan to renew again. BRAVO,... More

We always enjoy the Utah symphony. The performance coupled with a dinner makes for a fun night out. We hear the best music of the last 300 years
