UTAH SYMPHONY

MASTERWORKS SERIES

The Planets September 12 DEAR PATRONS, DONORS, AND FRIENDS, Did you know that when the Utah Symphony or Ballet West performs in Ogden, they are being sponsored by a local nonprofit organization? Many people in the audience do not realize that these local performances, which have been taking place since 1949, would not be possible without the hard work, dedication, and donations of residents and businesses in the Ogden area. What the audience hopefully does realize is that once they see who is onstage, they will spend the next hour or two enjoying only the finest in classical music and dance. As we celebrate 70 years of presenting world-class performing arts to you, we also introduce our new name – Onstage Ogden: What looks like a colon at the end of the name serves two purposes. It actually represents double O’s as an abbreviated form of our name. It also serves as a signal that something else is coming. It could be incomparable classical music with the Utah Symphony, an energetic vocal show by an a capella group that tours the world, or the Great Russian Nutcracker performed by the Moscow Ballet. But it could also be a concert providing aspiring local musicians the opportunity to audition and perform in front of a larger audience with the chance to receive an award from the Jean Pell Performing Arts Scholarship Fund.
