Five years since their last album, Mexican acoustic rock guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela are ready to embark on the next chapter of their remarkable story, with the release of the most ambitious music of their 20-year career together.
Entitled “Mettavolution,” the white-hot new album brings together Rod and Gab’s shimmering, hummingbird flourishes and extraordinary engine-room rhythm section, laser focused on melody, energy and beat. There is not an ounce of excess baggage on the fresh, dynamic tunes that Rod and Gab present here, which blend metal, jazz and Hispanic roots music in their own unique, unmistakable style
Through relentless touring and terrific word-of-mouth support, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as an in-demand live act, particularly in America, where they sold out the Hollywood Bowl (two nights) and the Red Rocks Amphitheatre as recently as summer 2018. They have also sold out multiple nights at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Le Zenith in Paris and Radio City Music Hall in New York, not to mention venues in Australia, Japan and Europe. They are recognized by their fans and critics alike as being one of the top live touring acts in the world.
Other guest artists at the 2019 Deer Valley® Music Festival include Utah Symphony performances with Utah native Marie Osmond, Broadway sensation Kristin Chenoweth, folk rock duo Indigo Girls, jazz trumpeter Chris Botti, and Broadway singer Renée Elise Goldsberry from the original cast of “Hamilton.”
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera continues to focus on community involvement and engagement with a series of “pop up” performances featuring smaller Utah Symphony and Utah Opera ensembles. The short performances occur around Park City and Summit County at existing events and in collaboration with other local festivals, including the Park Silly Sunday Market and Mountain Town Music, as a way of extending thanks to the community for hosting the Utah Symphony in its summer home.
