The Utah Symphony’s annual series of Summer Community Concerts kicks off at the Draper Amphitheater with associate conductor Conner Gray Covington leading a program filled with orchestral favorites—including Strauss’ Blue Danube waltzes, the theme from Jurassic Park, and Sousa’s The Stars and Stripes Forever—alongside newer symphonic sounds.
Concert Highlights Include:
- The first and second halves of the program each begin with fanfares: Copland’s Fanfare to the Common Man and Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman No. 1, dedicated to women “who take risks and are adventurous.”
- Hear three works by legendary film composer John Williams—Cowboy Overture, Born on the 4th of July, and the theme from Jurassic Park.
- Experience Quinn Mason’s 2021 piece Toast of the Town, a festive and fun overture designed in the style of light operetta.
