Utah Symphony in Helper
Historic Helper Main Street Park
2-356 South Main Street Helper, Utah 84526 Get Directions


Helper, just outside of Price, is a coal town-turned-charming art community. It’s the kind of town that makes you want to slow down and sink into a booth at a local restaurant and stay a while before meandering through the art galleries, admiring the restored buildings, or exploring the neighboring ghost towns.

Concert Highlights Include:

  • A melody everyone will recognize – “Flight of the Bumble Bee.” Played as an homage to the 125th anniversary of Utah becoming a state.
  • Lively melodies based on folk tunes that would have originally been played on fiddle or fife. “Romanian Folk Dances” is a fitting piece to describe the vivid landscapes and people of Utah.
  • Listen as the virtuoso Utah Symphony performs the highly spontaneous and emotionally powerful Symphony No. 7, a work Beethoven himself considered one of his best.

ELGAR: Salut d’amour (Love’s Greeting)
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Flight of the Bumblebee
