Speed Connections at the Symphony!
Venue
Abravanel Hall
123 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions

OVERVIEW

You could find the Rodgers to your Hammerstein at our first-ever Speed Connections night at the Utah Symphony, featuring our “Bravo Broadway!” concert.

We’ve reserved premium seating for concert-goers in their 20s, 30s, and 40s in the First Tier at Maurice Abravanel Concert Hall in downtown SLC. Hear familiar showstoppers from The Sound of Music, South Pacific, Oklahoma, The King and I, and many more—all performed by Broadway singers together with the Utah Symphony and Utah Opera Chorus!

With your ticket purchase, you’ll receive an exclusive invitation to our speed-dating-inspired party in the First Tier Suite at the concert hall before the performance! (Note, this is NOT limited to singles!) Enjoy beverages, hors d’oeuvres, and desserts, and bond with 40 of your fellow concertgoers in 40 minutes in our “speed connections” game filled with fun questions! (You could even find yourself sitting across from some of our musicians!)

Bring your partner, make it a girls’ or guys’ night out, or treat yourself on Valentine’s weekend—you’ll head into the concert hall with new friends, professional connections, or maybe a budding romance!

SPECIAL PRICE: $45 (reg. concert ticket price $57)

To ensure the health and safety of our audience members, performers, volunteers and staff, face masks are required for all attendees at this performance. Proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test will continue to be required for those 12 and older.  Learn more >
