KSL TV: Utah Symphony Holds Free Concert At Fremont High
by Carole Mikita
PLAIN CITY, Utah – More than 76,000 Utah public school students watched a Utah Symphony concert in the last school year. That’s 40 percent of our schools.
This week the orchestra underlined that commitment that began in 1975, with a school concert at Fremont High School in Plain City.
As the Utah Symphony opens its 78th season, the orchestra went “back to school,” performing for students in Northern Utah.
Music director Thierry Fischer called it an important symbol.
“For me to show our organization and the kids, that the first time of the season that I’m moving my arm, it’s for the kids, who are going to be the leaders of tomorrow. It’s a symbol,” Fischer said. “But I believe in symbols. And to be in a school outside of Ogden … seeing what’s the daily life of the people, who are going to continue to build this wonderful state. It’s very important to me that I give something also to this education vision of our organization.”
