Utah Youth Symphony

The Utah Youth Symphony is proud to hold a concert in the Salt Lake Tabernacle on Temple Square on Saturday, January 27. The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. The concert is open to the public and will be free to all who attend.

The concert will be conducted by music director of the Utah Youth Symphony, Barbara Scowcroft. Scowcroft is a longtime member of the Utah Symphony violin section.

Principal Tabernacle organist Richard Elliott will be performing as the organ soloist for a concert by the Utah Youth Symphony.

The concert will consist of three compositions by the great French composer and organist Camille Saint-Saëns.

  • “Lauriers,” from “Cyprès et Lauries,” Op. 156, for organ and orchestra. This was written in celebration of the Allied nations’ victory in World War I.
  • “Symphony No. 3 in C Minor,” Op. 78, for organ and orchestra. This is easily the best-known composition of all time for organ and orchestra. Many people will recognize the main theme of the final movement from its inclusion in the soundtrack for the 1995 movie Babe and its sequel, Babe: Pig in the City .
