The Insider – Utah Symphony Lights Up Bryce Canyon
by Kadi Franson
BRYCE – Ruby’s Bryce Canyon Rim was one of five venues chosen by the Utah Symphony to commemorate Utah’s 125th year of statehood. The symphony is in the middle of their 500 mile “Forever Mighty” road trip, journeying to the rural communities of Wellsville, Helper, Bryce, Hurricane, and Kanab to offer free outdoor concerts. The tour aims to celebrate pride in place, engage with the surrounding landscapes through music, and build communities by supporting local businesses.
The “Forever Mighty Tour” builds on the success of the Utah Symphony’s 2014 “Mighty 5 Tour” and 2017 “Great American Road Trip Tour,” both of which also featured the orchestra performing in spectacular outdoor settings in rural Utah communities.
“Utah has some of the most beautiful scenery in our country, and hearing the Utah Symphony perform outside in these breathtaking landscapes will be a treat for both the ears and eyes,” said Steven Brosvik, Utah Symphony | Utah Opera President & CEO. “From the steep, towering mountains in Cache Valley to the red sandstone cliffs in Kanab, each concert presents a unique, memorable opportunity to experience world-class orchestral music.”
