Utah Symphony – “Fifth Grade” Performances


Utah Symphony | Utah Opera’s longest standing educational performance is seeking two dynamic and energetic actors to help bring our 2024 production to life. This beloved show is specifically designed for Fifth Grade students from all around the Salt Lake metro area. Nearly 20,000 students will file into Abravanel Hall to witness the Nationally renowned Utah Symphony. This concert is often the first time many of these students see the Utah Symphony in Abravanel Hall and has been a tradition for over 40 years.

Our 2024 production “Hey Bravi!” brings our concert hall to life, a la siri, alexa or hey google. Our two on-stage actors will interact with Bravi, the audience, conductor and musicians in this engaging 45-minute show that will be offered 9 times across 5 days.
