In his U.S. debut, Scotish conductor Garry Walker conducts the Utah Symphony in a program of Russian favorites October 21 and 22. Featuring pianist Denis Kozhukhin, Walker leads the orchestra in works by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, and Stravinsky.
Walker and Toby Tolokan, vice president of artistic planning for the symphony, will present a free pre-concert lecture each night.
Walker was originally set to conduct the Utah Symphony in April 2010, but Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano grounded his trans-Atlantic flight.
