Local talent shines for the Salt Lake Symphony’s November concert. Dr. Peyden Shelton from the University of Utah School of Music, joins the Salt Lake Symphony to perform Alexandra Pakhmutova’s dazzling Concerto for Trumpet and Orchestra. The orchestra will also perform the premiere of Utah composer Nathaniel Eschler’s Cherish, written specifically for the Salt Lake Symphony and marking the 10th anniversary of the Salty Cricket Composers Collective. The SLS is pleased to collaborate with this organization and support our local composers. The orchestra will also continue the tradition of playing side by side with some of the talented young musicians from the Salt Lake region. Youthful talent will join SLS musicians to play Rossini’s effervescent Overture to La Gazza Ladra. All of this and Sibelius’ beloved Symphony No. 5, featuring your Salt Lake Symphony! It’s an evening chock full of talent, music, and energy!
Dr. Robert Baldwin will give a pre-concert discussion at 6:15 in Room 270 in the concert hall. In the talk, Dr. Baldwin will discuss the history and culture surrounding the music that’s featured on the program. The pre-concert discussion is free.
