After six days, seven concerts, and over 1,200 miles, we can finally take a deep breath! The Great American Road Trip was, in fact, great because we got to see the beauties of our state, interact with incredible people, and make memories at local schools.
Some of the greatest highlights were our incredible concert venues in Springdale, Bluff, and Vernal as well as our guest artists like Brent Michael Davids. But what made the trip most memorable was the people who came to our concerts. While we were all abuzz with the Duo de la mouche, our audience was all aflutter with tweets and snaps about the concerts. Here are the best comments about #UtahSymphonyRoadTrip:

Thanks to the @darkskycooperative for putting on their star parties along the #UtahSymphonyRoadTrip. Their work helps Utahns gain a greater appreciation for the night sky and builds a desire to limit light pollution. It's amazing just how many more stars, galaxies, and planets you can pick out away from our cities. Does anyone know if that's a (correction) galaxy glowing in the left of the frame?
During our visit to Cedar Breaks National Monument in late August we were fortune enough to catch this Chamber Concert by the Utah Symphony Brass Quintet. This Wednesday evening at an elevation of 10595 feet, the temperature was mid fifties with a West by Northwest wind blowing at 9 miles per hour. Overcoming the thin air, fluttering sheet music, cold hands, and scattered rain, Travis, Jeff, Brian, Mark, and David played the concert to the end. #human.people.online @utahsymphony @cedarbreaksnm
