Utah Symphony presents Mozart and Haydn

The Utah Symphony, known internationally for distinctive performances and award-winning recordings, is a perfect way to bring some class into your life. Join them for a spectacular night of works by classical composers Mozart and Haydn.

When: Feb. 1

Where: Val A. Browning Center for the Performing Arts, 1901 University Circle, Ogden, symphonyballet.org

Bruce Cockburn

Canadian musician Bruce Cockburn has been shaped by spirituality and musical diversity during his illustrious musical career. “My job,” he explains, “is to try and trap the spirit of things in the scratches of pen on paper and the pulling of notes out of metal.” Join him for a thrilling musical performance at The State Room.

When: Feb. 15

Where: The State Room, 638 S State Street, SLC, thestateroom.com

Abbey Road and Satisfaction

It’s the oldest question in rock n’ roll: The Beatles vs. The Rolling Stones? Everyone has already picked a side (probably drunkenly at a party) but dueling tribute bands Abbey Road and Satisfaction promise to settle this thing once and for all.

When: Feb. 12

Where: Metro Music Hall, 615 W. 100 South, SLC, 385-528-0952, metromusichall.com

Margo Price

Some of us were born too late to witness Loretta Lynn in her prime. Luckily we have Margo Price, who blew the roof off The State Room last time she played Salt Lake. It’s nothing short of a miracle that she’s playing the small venue again—the girl is going places, fast.

When: Feb. 23

Where: The State Room, 638 S. State St., SLC, 801-596-3560, thestateroom.com
