Eight Summer Performances Take The Utah Symphony To Communities Around The Wasatch Front

The Utah Symphony today announced the lineup for the 2019 summer community concert series in Salt Lake City and surrounding areas, several of which feature outdoor venues and free performances. The schedule includes orchestra performances in Layton on June 17, Gallivan Center on Monday June 24, Thanksgiving Point on June 26, Taylorsville Dayzz on June 27, Utah Cultural Celebration Center on July 1, Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre on July 2, and Snowbasin on July 3. The final summer concert is in commemoration of Zion National Park’s 100th anniversary, with a special performance of the orchestra with Sting on Aug. 31, 2019. No tickets are required for the Gallivan Center and Utah Cultural Celebration Center performances, which are free to the public. Tickets for the other performances are on sale now with ticketing information available at www.utahsymphony.org.

The summer community concert series allows Utah Symphony to connect people through great live music and collaborate with other venues outside of its regular performances in Abravanel Hall.

Utah Symphony Associate Conductor Conner Gray Covington will lead the Utah Symphony in six of the community concerts this summer. Guest conductor Michael Krajewski will conduct the performances at Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre and Snowbasin Resort featuring Broadway vocalist Hugh Panaro, who will also perform on the main stage at the Utah Symphony’s Deer Valley Music Festival in Park City.

Admission to the concerts at Gallivan Center and Utah Cultural Celebration Center are free to the public thanks to partnerships with local government programs. The Gallivan Center concert on June 24 is offered in thanks to the Utah Redevelopment Agency (RDA) of Salt Lake City. The RDA strives to improve blighted areas of Salt Lake City, encourage economic development, and support housing for low- and moderate-income households in compliance with the city’s master plan.

The Utah Cultural Celebration Center concert in West Valley City on July 1 is performed without admission charge to thank the community for its support of Salt Lake County’s Zoo, Arts and Parks (ZAP) Program. ZAP receives one penny for every $10 in sales tax, and benefits the community by providing grants to over 160 arts and cultural organizations, as well as 30-plus park and recreational facilities. To date, 3.8 million people have received free admission to an arts or cultural event that has been funded by ZAP.

Guest conductor Michael Krajewski and Broadway star Hugh Panaro perform patriotic pops favorites at three outdoor venues with the Utah Symphony, Red Butte Garden Amphitheater on July 1 and Snowbasin Resort on July 2. Hugh Panaro is best known for playing the coveted role of Phantom in Broadway’s "The Phantom of the Opera" over 2,000 times.

Following the Utah Symphony’s residency in Park City for the Deer Valley Music Festival, the orchestra will take the stage with megastar Sting at USANA Amphitheater on August 31 in a concert commemorating the 100th anniversary of Zion National Park.

These eight community concerts are presented in addition to the Utah Symphony’s seven-week Deer Valley Music Festival, which runs June 28 to August 10 in Park City, Utah. This year, the orchestra will perform 17 concerts during the festival’s 16th season: 13 main stage performances at Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater and four classical chamber concerts at St. Mary’s Church.

For all outdoor performances, patrons should remember that, even in the summer, the weather can be chilly after the sun goes down over the mountains of Utah, and are therefore reminded to bring a sweater and a blanket.

Approximate concert lengths are two hours with one 20-minute intermission. Performances will take place rain or shine.
