Utah Symphony Opening Gala - 'Ode to Joy'

The Utah Symphony opens its season with an all Beethoven program. Keith Lockhart will conduct, ushering in his final season as Music Director. The program includes Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto as well as his Ninth Symphony.

The Symphony hosts a pre-performance black tie dinner and then moves to its opening night performance featuring Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," followed by a post-performance celebration.

To begin his final season, Lockhart returns with two of his favorite music icons. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson will perform Beethoven’s most admirable and artistically complex piano concerto. Then the Utah Symphony Chorus will join the orchestra for Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.

The Symphony will also present the all Beethoven program on Saturday, September 13.

    I saw Judy Garland In Concert both nights in Boston at Symphony Hall. I strongly recommend it to anyone considering going -- it was quite remarkable to see Judy (and the Boston Pops, but mainly Judy) get standing ovations, and to see people weeping openly at her singing songs like "Over the Rainbow."
