Utah Symphony | Utah Opera Launches Fundraising Campaign with $5 Million Gift

Press Release

November 12, 2013

Salt Lake City — Utah Symphony | Utah Opera (USUO) has launched The Campaign for Perpetual Motion, a $20 million public fundraising campaign intended to build and showcase the organization throughout Utah and outside the state. USUO publicly announced the campaign and its lead gift of $5 million from the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation at the Utah Symphony’s concert on Friday.

“We are developing exciting plans surrounding the 75th anniversary of the Utah Symphony, including recording, broadcasting and touring not only statewide, but also nationally and internationally,” said USUO president and CEO Melia Tourangeau.

Special plans in development include:

  • Touring within Utah, including a statewide tour during the Utah Symphony’s 75th anniversary season in 2015-16 and a tour including free concerts in or near each of Utah’s five national parks
  • Utah Symphony tours to the West and East coasts
  • International touring of the Utah Symphony to Europe and Asia
  • New recording and broadcasting projects
  • Commissioning of new works including a special commission for the Utah Symphony’s 75th Anniversary to be inspired by Utah landscapes

“We have a long-term partnership with USUO that began with Uncle George and Aunt Lolie Eccles themselves 30 years ago, and a firm belief in the importance of this great organization,” said Eccles Foundation chairman and CEO Spencer F. Eccles.

In addition to its $5 million lead gift for the new Campaign for Perpetual Motion, the Eccles Foundation’s $1 million in 2011-2012 helped cap off USUO’s Leadership Campaign. Through the Leadership Campaign, USUO received commitments from approximately 35 individuals, corporations, and foundations, including a $4.6 million capstone commitment from O.C. Tanner Company.
