On September 18, the Utah Symphony will perform music by John Williams in the first of six 2019-20 concerts at Utah Valley University’s new Noorda Center for the Performing Arts in Orem, Utah. Performances will take place in the 889-seat main concert hall at the Noorda. The Noorda Center complex, which opened this March, comprises seven performance venues including the concert hall, an outdoor amphitheater, a 500-seat proscenium theater, a 175-seat flexible theater, a black-box theater, an instrument ensemble room, and a 125-seat recital hall. In addition to concerts at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, its principal venue, the Utah Symphony regularly performs in Ogden, Provo, and Lehi, and operates an education program throughout the state. The 2019-20 series at the Noorda will conclude with Orff’s Carmina Burana, Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending with Utah Symphony Concertmaster Madeline Adkins as soloist, and the world premiere of Nathan Lincoln de Cusatis’s The Maze, inspired by Canyonlands National Park in southern Utah.
