Park Record – Conner Gray Covington named as Deer Valley Music Festival’s principal conductor
The Utah Symphony Associate Director is now also the festival’s principal conductor, a role he will jump into when he leads the orchestra and Grammy-winning trumpeter Chris Botti Friday night at the Snow Park Amphitheater.
“It’s really a great honor, and it will be nice to have a little more say in the types of programming we do with the festival,” Covington said. “I have a great relationship with the musicians, staff and management and music director Thierry Fischer. And I’m looking forward to an expanded role up there in the summer.”
