Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7
Abravanel Hall
123 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Life is full of opposites: light and dark, hot and cold, triumph and tragedy. Experience the duality of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, with its contrasting moods—plus, Beethoven’s powerful overture to the tragic play about a Roman general who takes his own life after being torn between loyalty to his city and love for his family. Paired with Carlos Simon’s Fate Now Conquers (which incorporates harmonies from Beethoven’s Seventh) and one of Mozart’s greatest violin concertos, you have an evening of incomparable drama and joy.


Join us for a pre-concert chat about the evening’s program with Assistant Conductor Matthew Straw joined by guest artists and symphony musicians, held 45 minutes prior to the performance start time in the First Tier Room.
