A New Year’s Celebration
Fri, Jan 04
Ring in the New Year with guest conductor Xian Zhang, whose “incisive gestures elicit vivid performances” (The New York Times), as she leads the orchestra in six dazzling pieces, including well-known melodies from Sleeping Beauty, Joan Tower’s Fanfare, and lively Viennese waltzes. The celebratory music is a clever juxtaposition to Szymanowski’s lush and mysterious Violin Concerto No. 1, performed by concertmaster Madeline Adkins. Let Utah Symphony launch you into 2019 with verve and vitality!
