Deer Valley Music Festival’s third week of performances will include “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse,” Gershwin’s Greatest Hits and Leslie Odom, Jr. with the Utah Symphony.
The usually sold-out “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” features music of J.S. Bach and some of his closes colleagues performed by the Utah Symphony with conductor Jeannette Sorrell. The music is inspired by the lively concerts led by Bach himself in 18th-century Leipzig. The performance includes various colorful instruments and sounds. This is the first installment of the third week and will take place Wednesday, July 12th at 8:00 PM. Admission is $36 dollars for regular tickets and $15 for youth (ages 8-18).
The second performance is Gershwin’s Greatest Hits featuring “Rhapsody in Blue” on Friday, July 14th starting at 7:30 PM. As indicated by the title, the Utah Symphony alongside conductor John Morris Russell, will perform a concert made up of Gershwin’s greatest hits such as “I Got Rhythm” Variations, “An American in Paris” and “Symphonic Picture.” Guest Pianist Kevin Cole will also be included to perform “Rhapsody in Blue”. Admission for this night is also $36 dollars for regular tickets and $15 for youth.
Week three ends on a fantastic note by finishing off with Broadway star Leslie Odom, Jr.-winner of the 2016 Best Actor Tony for his performance in “Hamilton”- and the Utah Symphony. The performance is known to combine old standards such as a tribute to Nat King Cole with the more modern and jazz influences of Odom’s latest album and Broadway hits. Admissions for this show start at $42 for a regular ticket and the show starts at 7:30 PM.
All shows will be held at Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater located at 2250 Deer Valley Drive, Park City.
