Touring Salk Lake City's dramatic Symphony Hall.
Since its opening in 1979, Salt Lake City's Symphony Hall has gained a nationwide reputation for its fine acoustics. Now you can take a guided insider's tour on weekdays and, since symphony season runs September through April (pops concerts in July and August), maybe sit in on part of a rehearsal.
The 2,800-seat hall boasts oak paneling and 24-karat gold-leaf facing on tiers, floating staircases, and foyer walls. The glass curtain wall fronting the foyer hangs from a truss across the building front.
The free half-hour tours, led by docents, are given at 1, 1:30, 2, and 2:30 Tuesdays and Thursdays from now through May; same hours every weekday in June, July, and August. Reservations are required for groups of 15 or more. Tours meet at the southwest rear door of the concert hall, which is at the corner of South and West Temple. For more details, telephone (801) 533-5626.
