The West Valley Symphony was founded in 1990 and recently complete its 20th season in 2010. Weare now beginning our 22nd season of great concerts. It is an all-volunteer orchestra of nearly 80 musicians. The orchestra was featured this past summer, performing with the Choral Arts Society of Utah at the 65th annual Days of ’47 Pops Concert at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City and is scheduled to perform again for the KUTV Holiday Pops Concert on December 8th 2012 at Cottonwood High School.
Granger High School, which opened in 1958, is located in the Salt Lake Valley, an urban center of over one million people. In 1958, the area around Granger High School was predominantly rural/agricultural in nature. Since that time, the school and surrounding area has undergone dramatic changes stemming from a transition from a rural neighborhood and homogeneous school to a highly mobile, multi-ethnic community and rapidly changing urban educational center.
Granger High School is currently the peformance venue for the West Valley Symphony.
