Maurice Abravanel Concert Hall

Search Salt Lake Temple Utah

Abravanel Hall was created specifically to provide an environment of acoustical excellence by Dr. Cyril M. Harris. Abravanel Hall, formerly known as Symphony Hall, was so named in May of 1993 for the beloved Maestro Maurice Abravanel, conductor of the Utah Symphony and advocate for all the arts in Utah. Abravanel Hall is actually a concrete building within a brick building. Inside these two outer shells stands the beautiful concert hall. Designed strictly as a concert hall, the stage has no proscenium - rather it is an extension of the audience. The form of the hall is rectangular, which is characteristic of the world's finest symphony halls. To reach the hall patrons pass through sound lock corridors which are designed to prevent the confusion and noise from the lobby from spilling into the concert hall. Suspended from the ceiling are six 16 x 16 foot brass chandeliers with 18,000 hand cut beads and prisms of Bohemian crystals imported from Austria and Czechoslovakia.

For that reason, many residents of the Valley wanted to reestablish their Welsh roots. In 2005, after a 90 year break, this annual cultural event, now called the Malad Valley Welsh Festival, once again became a reality.
