So much fun and enjoyment watching Thierry Fischer direct an evening of Bach. He directed while playing the piano. He is excellent doing both. Flute soloist Mercedes Smith was outstanding. Of course, the space is fantastic.

There is no better way to spend an evening than with the Utah Symphony. The Sci-Fi concert exceeded all expectations. There were a lot of young people in attendance which is the perfect way to introduce them to the magic of a musical performance.
