Utah Symphony's DVMF Week 4: Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony (Aug 11), Mark O' Connor (Aug 13), Music of Led Zeppelin (Aug 14)


Mark O’Connor performs with the Utah Symphony followed by an evening of Led Zeppelin music

SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Symphony | Utah Opera’s 2010 Deer ValleyÒ Music Festival offers three final performances before it concludes its summer series in Park City. On Wednesday, August 11 at 8:00 p.m. guest conductor David Lockington leads a Chamber performance at St. Mary’s Church featuring Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony. The final performances at Deer ValleyÒ Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater feature violinist Mark O’Connor performing his own compositions with the orchestra on Friday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m. and the music of Led Zeppelin with a tribute band on Saturday, August 14 at 7:30 p.m.

Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony
The virtuosity of the Utah Symphony’s Principal Viola Brant Bayless will be showcased in this program which includes Bruch’s Romanze and Von Weber’s Andante and Hungarian Rondo. Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony closes the program. Broad, bold, serene, and even warlike at moments, this epic work is a perfect finale to the Chamber Orchestra Series.

Mark O’Connor
Equally comfortable in the classical, bluegrass, fiddle and compositional worlds, violinist and multi-Grammy winner Mark O’Connor has taken the music world by storm and worked with artists from Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer to Alison Kraus and Bela Fleck.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera’s Vivace members (a social and networking group for young professionals) are invited to attend the performance and a post-performance party at Red Rock in Park City (1640 W. Redstone Center Dr.) for just $25. These tickets may be purchased by calling (801) 533-NOTE (6683) or online by using promo code “Vivace.” For more information, please visit www.usuo.org/vivace.

Music of Led Zeppelin
Performed by the Utah Symphony and amplified with a full rock band and screaming vocals, arranger Brent Havens and his ensemble capture Led Zeppelin’s sheer blast and power riff for riff. The evening features “Stairway to Heaven,” “Heartbreaker,” “Black Dog” and “Immigrant Song.”

While in Utah, both Mark O’Connor and Maestro David Lockington are participating in the Park City High School Summer Music Camp. On Wednesday, August 11, Mark O’Conner leads a masterclass for fiddle students at 4:00 p.m. at the Eccles Center.
