The 2011 Deer Valley® Music Festival includes a little bit of everything to help you enjoy your summer to the fullest!
Our Saturday Pops concerts will open with the timeless Music of the Eagles, followed by best-selling jazz artist Chris Botti performing with the Utah Symphony. Broadway powerhouse and “Glee!” favorite Idina Menzel will also perform with the orchestra. Another incredible evening of popular Broadway showtunes with Jerry Steichen and noted stars from Broadway will then return to the Festival, and the series will conclude with the Music of Queen.
Friday Classical series concerts, also at the Deer Valley® Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater, will include performances with Time for Three and the Von Trapp Children. The Utah Symphony will also present a performance of Holst’s The Planets, accompanied by projections of stunning NASA images above the stage. Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture will then close the series.
Wednesday Chamber Orchestra concerts at St. Mary’s Church will feature Utah Symphony performances of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins, an evening of Eastern European dances, and Bottesini’s Gran Duo Passione Amorosa for two basses.
The serene setting of St. Mary’s will also host the Chamber Ensemble Series on Thursdays. Audiences will enjoy performances by Trio Voronezh (folk music band), Anonymous 4 (vocal a cappella quartet) and the always popular Muir String Quartet. Temple Har Shalom will host a performance featuring works from the Jewish American songbook.
