Though USUO hopes to proceed without interruption, the organization is prepared to respond to recommendations from the state of Utah, health officials, and Salt Lake County. Should USUO need to cancel or change elements of the season, ticket holders would be notified about options for ticket donations or exchanges into alternate programs. USUO continues to prioritize the health and well-being of its audience, musicians, staff, guest artists, and the entire community.

                                                              Experience a behind-the-scenes look at the process of bringing our concerts to the stage during our Finishing Touches rehearsals. This is a working rehearsal and selections from the weekend’s program will be made at the discretion of the conductor.

                                                              It might be common today, but Beethoven’s daring and “unplayable” concerto was written about 50 years too early for the violinists of his time.
