Utah Chamber Artists presents “Let’s Dance!”, its final concert of the season tonight, May 7, 7:30 p.m., at Libby Gardner Concert Hall, 1375 Presidents Cir., UofU. Life is a dance we all share with music bridging our experiences from one chapter to the next. In this concert, Utah Chamber Artists will perform music that brings us joy and lifts us up.
From Broadway classics such as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Shall We Dance?”, to Lerner and Lowe’s “I Could Have Danced all night”, to classical favorites, there will be something for everyone. You won’t want to miss this concert featuring music that moves!
