Music in the Mountains

Maybe it's because the awe-inspiring mountain vistas of Park City make one want to break out in song that the town has become such a mecca for musicians and musical admirers as well. Cool summer temperatures and lush mountain foliage make a gorgeous backdrop for the strains of symphonies, chamber music, jazz, bluegrass or rock n' roll during a Park City summer.

Park City UtahMusic in the Mountains, Park City's annual summer-long music festival, offers a varied schedule of musical happenings throughout town. The Utah Symphony performs open-air concerts at Deer Valley Resort Saturday nights during July and August, while the community comes together each Wednesday evening in City Park to enjoy local performing artists throughout the summer. Residents and visitors alike are serenaded by a wide array of music each Saturday afternoon as they explore Main Street or dine al fresco at any of the historic district's fine restaurants.

Festivals, popular among music enthusiasts, are even more special when the mountains set the stage. Summer visitors to the area have the opportunity to experience spectacular concerts by some of the world's top performers during these multi-day events, including Park City's annual Founder's Title Folk & Bluegrass Festival and the second-annual Fidelity Investments Park City International Jazz Festival. The long-standing Park City International Music Festival brings the most promising students and gifted teachers from around the world to town for a month of intense instruction and glorious performances. The festival's Summer Institute for Gifted Young Artists runs from mid-July through mid-August with public concerts at locations throughout town.

Both The Summit Institute for the Arts and Humanities and the Park City Performing Arts Foundation offer myriad cultural performances throughout the summer, including musical programs. In late June and early July, the Summit Institute presents a chamber music festival featuring the Muir String Quartet.

Park City UtahLive music from country western to rock n' roll to piano to jazz is offered at a variety of Park City nightclubs and restaurants as well, and live jazz is performed at the Main Street Mall each Saturday evening.
