The Bicentennial Symphony Hall opened on 14 September 1979, with guest conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczeski directing the Utah Symphony.   On 4 January 1993, the facility was renamed Abravanel Hall, in honor of Maurice Abravanel, who conducted the Utah Symphony for 32 years and was credited with transforming the part-time community orchestra into a nationally respected symphony.
