Review of Sacred Service performance by Edward Reichel [EXCERPT]


Armstrong captured the spirit and emotional force of Bloch’s work with his sensitive and perceptive direction. He elicited expressive singing from the choir and nuanced playing from the orchestra. The dramatic moments were nicely contrasted by lyrically infused passages and he kept everything wonderfully in balance.

Salt Lake Symphony, Utah Voices celebrate Beethoven [The Salt Lake Tribune]

By Catherine Reese Newton | The Salt Lake Tribune

It was standing room only Saturday in Libby Gardner Concert Hall as the Salt Lake Symphony teamed up with the up-and-coming Davis County-based Utah Voices in celebration of Beethoven.

The evening’s main event was Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. Though this symphony is best-known for its grand "Ode to Joy" choral finale, most of the heavy lifting comes from the orchestra.


Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is a major undertaking for any orchestra and chorus, not just for community ensembles. The work places huge demands on both the instrumentalists and singers, but that didn’t stop Robert Baldwin from programming it this season with his Salt Lake Symphony. And the performance Saturday with Utah Voices proved that not only the orchestra, but also the chorus, was more than up to the challenge. This is the third time the two groups have joined forces and it’s certainly a collaboration worth continuing. The two work well together.
