A cornerstone of the orchestral repertoire, Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony will be played alongside two lesser-known works, Malcolm Arnold’s Scottish Dances and Tchaikovsky’s thrilling “other piano concerto,” the Piano Concerto No. 2. Come hear the familiar and soon-to-be familiar music at Libby Gardner Concert Hall!

This spring visit Red Butte Garden to see the growing display of over 460,000 blooming bulbs! In the fall of 2017, staff and volunteers planted 32,600 more bulbs, including many in the Adaptive Beauty terrace of the new Water Conservation Garden.
The bulbs usually begin to bloom in March with ground-covering mini-Iris in various shades of blues, purples, and yellows. Then in April, fresh, show-stopping daffodils herald the arrival of spring. Visit the Garden April 14 through April 28 for the best blooms. The Garden has over 239,018 daffodils and 228,413 other bulbs such as Allium, Anemone, Cyclamen, Galanthus, Hyacinth, and more. Flowering bulbs are not the only showy spring display— trees and shrubs also begin to blossom throughout the Garden—Serviceberry, Crabapple, Magnolia, Flowering Cherry, Pears, and Lilacs.
Since 2013, Red Butte Garden has been recognized as an official Daffodil Display Garden by the American Daffodil Society. Our display represents all 13 recognized daffodil divisions, which are based on floral parts and species derivation.CATEGORY: Community Events
