This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. With more than 175 annual performances, Utah Symphony | Utah Opera is one of the most active professional arts companies in the country. President & CEO Steve Brosvik is here to tell us how a thriving performing arts scene helps make Utah a great place to live and do business.


The important role of the arts has never been clearer. We all turned to streamed entertainment to fill our time during the pandemic, but missed gathering together to share experiences with others. The arts entertain and enrich our lives, but they also help build community and support the economy.

Utah Symphony | Utah Opera’s mission is to “connect the community through great live music.” We bring people together for shared experiences. With a wide variety of programs—from Films in Concert to opera music and family concerts—there is an event for everyone.

This summer we hit the road to perform throughout Utah. Whether you attend a free concert in a park, hear the symphony perform in Park City, or experience an event on our Forever Mighty Tour, we hope you’ll take the opportunity to come together again with your community.


Utah businesses cite a vibrant arts and culture scene as a top reason for choosing a business location, and Utah Symphony | Utah Opera is an important player in that. Learn more at I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
