The Salt Lake Tribune – Utah Symphony begins a new season with a new CEO, and new challenges from COVID-19
Steven Brosvik said he knew, when he started his new job last month as president and CEO of Utah Symphony | Utah Opera, that it wouldn’t be long before the symphony would return to the stage of Abravanel Hall.
“There is so much great intention in the community to help fund [the symphony], help support it, help get it going,” Brosvik said in a recent interview. “It’s not the same in every community. I think we’re really lucky here.”
Exactly one month after he stepped into the job, the Utah Symphony — well, for now, just the string section — will be performing for the first time in six months, since the COVID-19 pandemic shut down music venues across the country.
