Posted on: June 27, 2018

“Since 2003, the Utah Symphony | Utah Opera has called Park City and Summit County its summer home with the Deer Valley Music Festival,” writes Scott Iwasaki in last Tuesday’s (6/19) Park Record (Park City, UT). “Because of that long history, the musicians and staff decided to focus on the local community and show their appreciation, said Renee Huang, Utah Symphony | Utah Opera director of communications. ‘We wanted to offer some events, most of which are free, that are pop-up concerts that feature Utah Symphony | Utah Opera ensembles and musicians,’ Huang said. ‘The musicians will just pop into events and other activities that take place in the community during the summer.’ These musical happenings will kick off with three mini concerts in collaboration with Arts Pianos for All and the Park City Summit County Arts Council and continue with other offerings.” Musical events will take place at venues including the Park City Library, Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Amphitheater plaza, St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Miners Park, Susan Swartz Studios, and Gallery MAR. ‘These events are short and fun and designed to show how grateful our musicians are to be able to have a residency up in Park City,’ Huang said.”
