Utah Symphony: Cho's Anatomy 

Tuesday, April 27

For many folks, the fine arts can seem intimidating without a foundation. Sure, you can attend a symphony performance, but you’re not sure you’re really grasping why it works—or doesn’t— for you. And that sense leads to the feeling that the arts are for “other people.”

Utah Symphony associate conductor David Cho has the cure for that distancing lack of knowledge. In the latest “Cho’s Anatomy” performance, designed for ages 12 and up, the audience gets not just a performance—of Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 in E-flat Major, in this case—but also a music-appreciation course. The conductor will provide notes on melody, theme, rhythm and choice of instrumentation prior to each movement, giving the performance a unique critical perspective. At a family-friendly price, it’s the cheapest—and most entertaining—crash course you’ll ever take.

Cho’s Anatomy: Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 in E-flat Major @ Abravanel Hall, 123 W. South Temple, 801-355-2787, April 27, 7 p.m., $8 children/$18 adults. UtahSymphony.org
