March 25 | Red Desert: The Edge of Music

Red Desert, the duo project of clarinetist/curator Katie Porter and composer/percussionist Devin Maxwell, presents an evening of experimental chamber music designed to blur the line between music and sound. The concert will feature established works as well as compositions written specifically for Red Desert.

April 8 | On with the Dance! Utopia’s Ten-Year Renaissance

In partnership with the Utah Classical Guitar Society, University of Utah, and Westminster College, Salt Lake City’s own Utopia Early Music brings together local and out-of-state early-music specialists and dance troupe Dance Balletti in a celebratory extravaganza combining Renaissance music and dance.
