Utah Symphony, violinist Hilary Hahn at BYU Nov. 15

The Brigham Young University Performing Arts Series welcomes the Utah Symphony conducted by Thierry Fischer with guest violinist Hilary Hahn to the de Jong Concert Hall Thursday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $20 for the general public, $17 for alumni and senior citizens, and $13 for students. They are available for purchase through the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 422-4322, or at byuarts.com/tickets.

The program features the Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K.551, “Jupiter” by Mozart, the Adagio from the Symphony No. 10 in F-Sharp Major by Mahler and the Violin Concerto in D Major Op. 35 by Korngold.

Hahn’s probing interpretations, technical brilliance and commitment to new music and the commissioning process have not only made her one of the most sought-after artists of her generation, but also brought her love of classical music to a diverse audience.

Although only 32 years old, her international fame and recognition — including two Grammies, multiple Diapason “d'Or of the Year” and “Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik” prizes, and the 2008 Classic FM/Gramophone Artist of the Year award — are a testament to her talent and drive.

For more information, contact Ken Crossley at (801) 422-9348 or ken_crossley@byu.edu.
