Utah Symphony Welcomes the Accomplished Shiyeon Sung to the Stage

Shiyeon Sung will conduct the Utah Symphony as they perform an autumn concert together

“We are delighted to welcome the Utah Symphony back and to continue our long-standing relationship with this incredible organization,” said BYU Arts and Bravo! producer Bridget Benton.

The performance will be unique as South Korea’s own will be on the podium. Benton said, “This concert is particularly exciting for us as this concert will be conducted by Shiyeon Sung.”

Sung is known for the impact she’s had in her occupation. She is the first female conductor of South Korea to lead orchestras that are internationally renowned. She won the Gustav Mahler Conductors’ Competition in Bamberg, Germany and was the first woman to win the International Conductors’ Competition Sir Georg Solti.

Benton continued, “She is a trailblazer of the profession and it is an honor to have her and the Utah Symphony on our campus.”

This performance will take place on Thursday, November 18 at 7:30 p.m. It will be located in the de Jong Concert Hall in the Harris Fine Arts Center.
