Last night we were invited to share an evening with the Utah Symphony and special guest Bernadette Peters at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City.
To kick off the night, we were treated to arrangements of famous musicals, Big Band era compositions and a selection of songs from On the Town. It was an energetic and enjoyable evening in and of itself. I could have easily gone home satisfied with the beautiful music and talent we got to experience for the first half of the evening. After a brief intermission, though, we had the pleasure of being introduced to the one and only Bernadette Peters.
If you’ve never had the opportunity to see her perform live, you are definitely missing out and should take the opportunity to grab tickets now to see her while she is still in town tonight for a final performance tonight. There is no one quite like her.
She shared her beautiful voice with us in songs she had performed on Broadway, as well as renditions of other popular tunes. Her love and friendship with Stephen Sondheim was apparent as she showcased many of her favorite songs that he had written. All the while she was accompanied by our own Utah Symphony, which was absolutely flawless. In between songs, she treated us to funny jokes and stories.
The evening with Bernadette was enchanting. She has been performing most of her life and it shows as she so naturally graces the stage and pulls the audience into her world. It was an experience not to be missed!
Dare to be starstruck as critically acclaimed Broadway favorite, Bernadette Peters, takes the stage at Maurice Abravanel Hall. Accompanied by the Utah Symphony, this three-time Tony award winning chanteuse will dazzle you with beloved hits from musicals past and present!!
Dress to impress on the red carpet tonight and mix and mingle in the lobby while you challenge yourself in Broadway Trivia hosted by Life of the Party Entertainment.
You can still get tickets for this evening’s performance, November 19, 2022 at 7:30pm, by visiting the Utah Symphony online.
