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.

We attend the symphony frequently. The performance is held in a beautiful symphony hall and the Utah Symphony consists of many extremely talented people.

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.

Top notch symphony that can compete with the best in the world. Their Deer Valley performances in the summer are a special treat.

We've had season tickets to the symphony for several years now. We enjoy going to the Pops concerts but also attend some of the classical concerts. The music is always wonderful and the venue is great.
