The West Valley Symphony of Utah presents: On the Trail, featuring the “Grand Canyon Suite” by Ferde Grofe, under the direction of Music Director Donny Gilbert, Saturday, April 22nd at 7:30 p.m. The concert also features music that describes the wide-open spaces, majesty and people who discovered and settled the western parts of the United States, starting with the energetic "Cowboys Overture.” The symphony will then pay tribute to the Native Americans that inhabited the lands west of the Appalachians with the noble sounds of "The Last of the Mohicans". The orchestra will then perform a picturesque suite based on one of the most impressive and awe-inspiring features of planet Earth: The Grand Canyon. The "Grand Canyon Suite" features sunrises, the wide-open desert, a donkey ride to the bottom of the canyon and a midnight rain storm complete with lightning and thunder. Come and enjoy this musical journey and tour of the west with the West Valley Symphony.
