Experience the transformative power of a live performance of the Utah Symphony at the awe-inspiring Waterfall Amphitheater. Founded in 1940, the Utah Symphony is one of America’s major symphony orchestras, known internationally for its distinctive performances and recording legacy. Today, the orchestra’s 85 full-time professional musicians perform over 175 concerts each season.
The orchestra under the direction of Conner Gray Covington will perform selections from composer John Williams’ movie scores—including Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Superman—and Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture with live cannon fire by Cannoneers of the Wasatch. Bring a picnic, grab concessions, or pre-order a picnic dinner. Following the performance enjoy a firework show.
The Saturday around Midsummer’s Eve, join us to celebrate magic, fairies, and the rich characters of fairy tales! Everyone will enjoy as we bring these folk tales to life discussing the science and history behind these stories and what we can learn from them. Come experience fairy tale themed crafts, activities, and performers in the magical Ashton Gardens. It will be an adventure the whole family can enjoy!
For the first time ever the Fairy Tale Festival will feature a Fairy Tale Boutique for all princes and princesses out there! Visit us online to get your package reserved with our friends at Brick Canvas!
