Deseret News: No one throws a party like the Utah Symphony, especially if it’s for a 100-year-old composer
By Lottie Peterson Johnson
If the Utah Symphony is trying to send a message with its opening concerts of the 2018-19 season, perhaps it’s this: A party never has to die.
Upcoming performances on Sept. 13 in Ogden and Sept. 14 and 15 in Salt Lake City return to something the symphony started last season — a celebration of renowned conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein’s birth centennial. The big day came and went on Aug. 25, but that doesn’t mean the symphony is done celebrating the famed American composer.
