Dvorák’s Violin Concerto

Dvorák’s Violin Concerto
Abravanel Hall
123 W South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Close out Women’s History Month and join us as conductor Anna Rakitina and violinist Sirena Huang make their debut on our stage. Huang, an international competition gold medalist, performs Dvořák’s Violin Concerto, inspired by traditional Czech dances and sure to be felt in every limb. Sibelius’ First Symphony is consuming, closing with the passionate Quasi una fantasia (“Like a Fantasy”). Also featuring Smetana’s Šárka—based on the Czech legend of an uprising of women called “The Maiden’s War”—this performance is a testament to all that women can do.


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.

CoComplete a Behind the Music card found at the high-top tables in the lobby and bring it to the gift shop for a discount and to enter a drawing for free tickets.
