SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Symphony/Utah Opera will collaborate with the Alzheimer's Association Utah Chapter for "Making Sense of Alzheimer's Month" in May, providing those with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias more access to classical music.

USUO will offer discounted and complimentary tickets for May performances to those with Alzheimer's and related dementias, their families and their caregivers.

The organization hopes to provide a chance to enjoy the soothing and energizing aspects of music that contribute to music therapy treatments.

USUO will also provide small outreach performances by professional musicians at local care centers.
