The 49th Annual Park City Kimball Art Festival: What’s New this Summer
The Park City Singers is a community choir welcome to all, and they are currently recruiting new members!
Renee Mox Hall, member of the Park City Singers explains “as a non-audition choir, beginners are welcome and not all members read music. Newer vocalists benefit from singing with those with more experience. All members receive a CD recording of their part which is also very instrumental to learning music. Choir membership is a learning experience for members, a contribution to and connection with the community and an avenue to new friendships."

English & Hareza // Local Musicians On The Road Again
Live music and outdoors concerts are cornerstones of a great Park City summer. Both residents and visitors alike look forward to grabbing a blanket and a few friends to enjoy the many musical opportunities around town. In that tradition, this summer marks the 15th year in a row that Park City Institute (PCI) presents its outdoor concert series, the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights. This year comes with a twist however. After learning late last year that Deer Valley wasn’t going to renew PCI’s contract to hold the concerts at the resort, there was a scramble to select and secure a new venue for this summer’s great lineup.

Park City’s got the Blues // Grammy Nominated Musicians this December
Film and music go hand in hand. The essence and mood of a scene in a film can be made with music (think the two terrifying notes in JAWS, Rocky’s pump-up music during his famous workout montage, or the simple image of John Cusack in Say Anything holding up a boombox blaring ‘In Your Eyes’ by Peter Gabriel). The music in these scenes made them iconic, and will forever be associated with these films.
That being said, the Sundance Film Festival does not ignore the importance of music. The Festival offers an array creative experiences throughout the 10 day event, many of them being performances. Every year the music scene is quality, and one company makes the scene especially interesting by bringing in the sound of Nashville alternative music into the mix. An array of artists, musicians and songwriters will showcase their talents, and this year, local Summit County musicians are also given an opportunity to get involved.

Park City Singers: Bringing People Together
A few years back a friend asked me if I knew of Johnsmith and his music. They were shocked when I said I did not. Their advice was very simple, “well you should check him out”. I did and this is what I found.
Johnsmith is one of those artists so often under-recognized – he possesses a genius that cannot be denied, ignored, or overlooked. For the past thirty-plus years, Johnsmith has been sharing his music all across America and abroad.

One Voice Children's Choir: A 2002 Olympic Legacy
Summit County's Kimball Junction Transit Center has been busy with activity over the last several weeks as local artist Kylie Millward has been finishing up her work on the Kimball brand upright piano. Kylie has painted the old player piano with folksy scenes of Utah wildlife, including a skunk, elk, snake, beaver, and mountain goat, as well as a few hidden artistic surprises such as a bear catching a fish.
Those attending Mountain Town Music's July 5th Wednesday concert at Deer Valley were treated to a real bonus. The opening act, ONE VOICE Children's Choir, originated from a group of children who sang at the 2002 Winter Olympics under the direction of Masa Fukuda and were so powerfully impacted by the experience they asked to continue to sing together.
