Abravanel Hall is the home of the Utah Symphony. The building was designed and constructed for accoustical excellence. It seats 2,811 people--without a bad seat in the house.
The structure was built in the late 70s, as part of the Bicentennial Complex. In 1993, it was renamed Abravanel Hall after Maurice Abravanel (1903-1993), who led the symphony from its early days in 1947 to his retirement in 1979. Although Maurice Abravanel was instrumental in the design and construction of the complex, he never raised his baton in the building the bears his name.
