Utah Symphony's Healthcare Night

Friday, March 25, 2016 | 7:30 PM | Abravanel Hall
Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2


Healthcare Night is a fundraising effort led by physicians in support of Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO) Education & Outreach. Contributions amounted to over $100,000 in each of the past two years. In addition to supporting USUO’s 40+ ongoing education programs, these gifts also count toward the 1:1 match in private donations required for USUO to receive public education funding from the Utah State Legislature. 

The Impact of Your Donation

USUO’s extensive Education and Community Outreach programming reached 145,606 students and 6,254 teachers in 31 Utah school districts in 2014-15. In addition to free performances, USUO provides classroom activities and projects, masterclasses, and instructional materials designed to meet the full range of grade level standards. These opportunities are mapped out on a three- to five-year touring schedule to serve all Utah children multiple times in their K-12 years. With numerous partners among schools and service agencies, USUO also provides free performances for special audiences who would otherwise not be able to attend our live concerts and opera productions. These opportunities include USUO’s annual Night for the Blind and Visually Impaired, during which patrons have the ability to touch props and costumes as well as listen to a live description of the stage action, and the Access to Music concert for children and adults with autism or other conditions that would make it difficult for them to sit quietly through a performance.
