A New Year's Celebration
Fri, Jan 04
Ring in the new year with guest conductor, Xian Zhang, the first woman to have a titled conducting role with a BBC orchestra. Zhang hopes, “When girls see other women doing [my] job, they will feel that they can do it too.” Zhang will lead the orchestra in six dazzling pieces, including well-known themes from Sleeping Beauty, Szymanowski’s modern violin concerto, and concluding with a lively Strauss waltz. Let Utah Symphony launch you into 2018 with passion!
