Kick off your 4th of July weekend with the West Valley Symphony, performing a free concert at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center on Monday, July 2, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. to begin the WorldStage! series. The Cultural Center is located at 1355 West 3100 South, West Valley City, Utah.
The West Valley Symphony with Music Director Donny Gilbert will perform an “American Overtures."
The westward expansion of the United States is one of the defining themes of 19th-century American history. Join us as the symphony performs selections of the “Old West” including John Henry by Aaron Copland, Jay Ungar's Ashokan Farewell featuring Concert Master Kelly Richardson, and American Civil War Fantasy by Jerry H. Bilik. Highlighting the performance will be the performance of a new work by conductor and composer Donny Gilbert, The Trail of Butch and Sundance.
The West Valley Symphony, founded in 1990, is an all-volunteer orchestra of nearly 80 musicians. The orchestra has performed from Logan to Provo, including performances in Abravanel Hall, the Salt Lake Tabernacle and the Taylorsville Dayzz celebrations.
