About Utah Symphony | Utah Opera
Founded in 1940, the Utah Symphony performs more than 175 concerts each season and offers all Utahns easy access to world-class live musical performances of the world’s greatest music in the state’s top venues. Named the orchestra’s seventh music director in 2009, Thierry Fischer has attracted leading musicians and top soloists to the community, and celebrated the orchestra’s 75th anniversary with a performance at Carnegie Hall. Building on the legacy by long-time Music Director Maurice Abravanel, Maestro Fischer continues to record the orchestra; its most recent release is an album for Hyperion of music by Saint-Saëns.
Utah Opera, established by Glade Peterson in 1978, has been part of the Utah community for 40 years and engages audiences through inspiring operatic performances. The opera company presents four annual productions at the historic Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol, In addition to producing classic works from the operatic repertoire, Utah Opera also emphasizes the importance of contemporary American opera, with notable achievements including most recently the creation and premiere in 2018 of the second production of Jake Heggie’s and Gene Scheer’s “Moby-Dick,” which will appear in co-producing companies throughout the United States and Europe. Current Artistic Director, Christopher McBeth, joined the company in the fall of 2000 and took over primary artistic leadership in 2003.
The six-week Deer Valley® Music Festival is the summer home of the Utah Symphony, and was named one of the top summer destinations by CNN in 2016.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, the orchestra’s parent organization, merged in 2002 and reaches 400,000 residents in Utah and the Intermountain region, with music outreach programs serving around 150,000 students annually. For more information visit www.usuo.org
