Buy Tickets

Student tickets are now available for this performance for $20. The student rate is extended to students of any age as well as all patrons who are 30 or younger.


Join us for an all-new concert experience at Abravanel Hall. It’s the same great music you love from the symphony, but it’s presented in a whole new way. Wear what makes you comfortable (the orchestra will, too!), forget all those confusing clapping rules and react to the music as you see fit, and grab some food and drinks and have fun with your friends in the lobby.

UNWOUND is a new way in to live classical music:

  • We are focusing in on and amplifying the visual elements of music-making to bring our audience in (i.e. dramatic lighting & IMAG video)
  • The evening is hosted by Jeff Counts of the Utah Symphony’s Ghost Light Podcast. Trust him, for new concert-goers he will be your guide.
  • Want to know more about the music? Stay in your seats for a Q & A with the artists after the concert.
