While this year’s Utah Symphony season will not open until Sept. 10, the organization has already announced its program schedule for 2010-11. Under the direction of a new music director, Thierry Fischer, the season of concerts and performances will include Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” and “The Firebird” ballet as well as symphonic interpretations and screenings of “The Wizard of Oz” and “Planet Earth.”

“I am honored to be the new music director of the Utah Symphony, and I’m excited about what the 2010-11 season has to offer the community,” said Fischer. “[We] worked diligently to create an exciting season that will not only thrill audiences, but challenge the orchestra as well.”

Eighteen classical performances will include Beethoven’s “Pastoral Symphony,” Brahms’ “Second Piano Concerto” and Tchaikovsky’s “Violin Concerto.”
