SALT LAKE CITY— The Utah Symphony, under the direction of conductor Nicholas McGegan, will dive into a lyrical adventure as they pay musical homage to the sea in a concert featuring Handel's "Water Music."
At the concerts Jan. 4 and 5 at 8 p.m. in Abravanel Hall, the orchestra will also perform a flood of other works, including "The Swan of Tuonela," by Jean Sibelius; Benjamin Britten's "Four Sea Interludes;" and Felix Mendelssohn's "The Fair Melusina."
Also on the program are two violin concertos by Vivaldi and Bach, featuring Utah Symphony Concertmaster Ralph Matson.
McGegan and Toby Tolokan, Utah Symphony vice president of artistic planning, will present a free pre-concert chat each night, one hour prior to the start of the performance on the orchestra level of Abravanel Hall.
Single tickets for the performances range from $18 to $53 and can be purchased by calling 801-355-2787, in person at the Abravanel Hall ticket office (123 W. South Temple) or by visiting www.utahsymphony.org.
