The Utah Symphony will hold concerts to commemorate the legacy of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22-23 at 8 p.m. at Abravanel Hall.
Guest narrator Edward Herrmann will join Maestro Thierry Fischer and the symphony.
The works to be performed include “An American Overture” by Benjamin Britten; Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 4, “The Inextinguishable”; “Elegy for JFK” by Igor Stravinsky; and “Remembering JFK” by Peter Lieberson, according to a news release.
A pre-concert chat with Fischer; Mogens Mogensen, a Carl Nielsen scholar; and Toby Tolokan, vice president of symphony artistic planning, will be held one hour before each concert.
The Road Home and the Utah Symphony will hold a benefit and clothing drive in the lobby of Abravanel Hall prior to both evening concerts. They welcome donations of cash as well as warm clothes, blankets, ski jackets, mittens, boots, hats and scarves. Those who donate will receive "Utah Symphony bucks" that can be used toward tickets for future performances. More information is available at theroadhome.org.
Tickets start at $18 and increase by $5 when purchased on the day of the performance. They are available at the Abravanel Hall ticket office, located at 123 W. South Temple, by phone at 801-355-2787 or online at utahsymphony.org.
