Top 10 Reasons to Subscribe to the Symphony

by Merry Magee and Kathleen Sykes

In a world where you can stream music, movies, and TV on demand, no one is a stranger to the entertainment subscription. But have you ever thought about subscribing to a season full of great LIVE music? Become a Utah Symphony season ticket holder, and you’ll practically guarantee a year’s worth of exciting experiences.

Here’s our top 10 list of reasons to subscribe:

#1 Support live music in your community!

As a subscriber, you won’t just be another concertgoer—you’ll be part of an enthusiastic group that supports Utah’s rich artistic heritage and believes in the power of music to impact lives for good. When you buy a ticket or donate to Utah Symphony, you help us reach out to the community, fund our education programs in schools, and keep the Utah arts scene vibrant.

#2 Get the best seats in the house.

Our subscribers love their seats! When you subscribe, you can be first in line to claim the seats you love, year after year, for as long as you like. You’ll also have access to seating months before tickets become available to the general public.

#3 Live your best life, worry free.

Scheduling conflict? Last-minute change of plans? No worries! Subscribers can exchange their tickets with no fees up to 24 hours before the performance. You can even exchange them online.

#4 Expand your taste in music.

Even if you don’t know much about orchestral music now, as a subscriber you’ll develop an in-depth understanding and appreciation that can only be achieved by regularly attending professional performances. Additionally, many of our concerts feature tried-and-true favorites like Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” and Mozart’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik,” but we also put hidden gems on each concert that are sure to be your new favorites! Is there any better way to expand your taste in music?

We offer loads of opportunities for you to learn about the music. Plan to arrive at your concert early, and you can attend a pre-concert lecture with our Vice President of Symphony Artistic Planning, Toby Tolokan, who is an expert in the field! He’ll often invite the guest artists and our own orchestra musicians to speak, so you get an inside perspective on the concert.
