Steve Lawrence still has fond memories of the two evenings 12 years ago when he and his wife - singing partner Eydie Gorme - performed with the Utah Symphony for its final concerts in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.

"It was a thrill to sing with them, and knowing it was the last concert in the Tabernacle was very meaningful," Lawrence said during a recent telephone interview from his home in Los Angeles. "It was a wonderful, wonderful experience and we had the time of our lives."
