The Utah Symphony was scheduled to resume concerts for live audiences on March 25 with the re-opening of its home venue, Abravanel Hall. Social distancing, face coverings, and other health and safety guidelines were laid out in re-opening plans. Altogether, the Utah Symphony has six programs planned through the end of May.
Abravenel Hall had first re-opened in September for small-scale performances by Utah Symphony string and percussion players—those who could play their instruments while wearing masks. Wind and brass ensembles also performed in October and November, before the hall closed again in late November following the nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases.
Utah Symphony musicians are members of Local 104 (Salt Lake City, UT).
