Nearly 60 years have passed since the de Jong Concert Hall first opened its doors for performances to the public. In its last concert of the season, the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra presents its season finale on April 8.

Under the direction of Kory Katseanes, this concert will include the Philharmonic’s performance of Brahms’ “Symphony No. 1,” which first opened the de Jong Concert Hall in 1964. The piece celebrates the life of the de Jong as the School of Music looks forward to the completion of the new music building.

The Philharmonic’s season finale pays tribute to “the massive body of work performed in the hall over the years,” from School of Music ensembles to guest artists.

The BYU Philharmonic invites all to join the group in celebrating the de Jong at its season finale.
