Healthcare Night

Friday, February 4, 2022 | 7:30 PM | Abravanel Hall


Since the 1980s, Healthcare Night has gathered medical professionals together at beautiful Abravanel Hall for a special concert, honoring the vital partnership between our incredible medical community and the Utah Symphony. Medical students are invited to attend Healthcare Night free of charge, providing the next generation of healthcare professionals the opportunity to experience the world-class music of the Utah Symphony. The cost of the students’ tickets are subsidized by generous donations from healthcare professionals. These gifts also support USUO’s 40+ ongoing education programs and count toward the 1:1 match in private donations required for USUO to receive public education funding from the Utah State Legislature.

Double the impact of your donation

The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation pledged a matching challenge grant in support of our mission to “Connect the Community through Great Live Music.” Every gift from a new donor or an increased gift from our existing donors will be matched 1:1 up to $500,000 from now through May 1, 2022. With this match your new or increased gift will have DOUBLE the impact!

The Impact of Your Donation

Every single thing we do at USUO is possible because of your donation.

Every season, as a part of our education initiative, the Utah Symphony travels the great expanse of Utah to perform for free in schools, bringing along the full orchestra (we’re talking EVERY SINGLE PERSON!) or a slightly smaller chamber orchestra of 45 to 50 musicians.

In fact, we make a point of visiting every school district in Utah over a 3-5 year period. That means virtually every child in Utah will have a chance to hear a professional orchestra as part of their education. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, Utah Symphony | Utah Opera proudly served 90,550 students in the 2020-21 season.
