Spring Concert - From the New World

The West Jordan Symphony’s annual Spring Concert, entitled From the New World, will feature Antonín Dvořák's 9th Symphony in its entirety! Come and listen as the musical story unfolds: the excitement and trepidation of setting out on a new journey, the nostalgia and longing for home, pressing onward, ending with the final, triumphant fanfare! Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings will also be performed--a piece of exquisite beauty and heart-rending melancholy! A performance not to be missed!

Spring Concert - The Hebrides

"I will have the pleasure of conducting the West Jordan Symphony, leading you on a Journey through a diverse collection of 19th-century symphonic literature.

You will be thrilled by the relentless motives and ostinati of Holst's "Mars - Bringer of War," touched by hypersensitive emotions in "Nimrod," and charmed by Beethoven and Mendelssohn's clever manipulation of classical styles within an ever-developing Romantic tradition.

Come and hear - we'd LOVE to see you."

- Music Director, Shane Mickelsen

West Jordan Symphony's annual Spring Concert.

  • Mendelssohn - Hebrides Overture

  • Holst - Mars

  • Elgar - Enigma Variations IX, Nimrod

  • Beethoven - Symphony VII 2nd Movement

  • Mickelsen - Amazing Grace
