MUSIC EDUCATION OFFERINGS FOR STUDENTS
Providing opportunities for students in our community to learn about classical music is an important part of the Utah Symphony’s mission. We offer a variety of opportunities for individual students and classes to experience the Utah Symphony.
SALUTE TO YOUTH
The 2019-2020 season marks the 60th anniversary of the Utah Symphony’s Salute to Youth Concert. Each year, Utah’s most talented youth participate in an extensive audition process for the chance to play a movement of a concerto on the Abravanel Hall stage with the Utah Symphony and to join the ranks of the 380 soloists who have come before them.
