About Maurice Abravanel
Maurice Abravanel served as Utah Symphony music director for over three decades. Maestro Abravanel, born in Greece and raised in Switzerland, became enamored by Utah’s majestic mountains and a group of dedicated Salt Lake City musicians. Under his baton, the Utah Symphony grew from a part-time community ensemble to a world-class symphony orchestra. He led the orchestra on many successful national and international tours, brought the symphony to prominence through recording contracts, and was the first conductor to lead an American orchestra in recording all Mahler’s symphonies. His commitment to serving the community helped raise the quality of life in Utah and influenced millions through his musical talent.
