We Are Back! The Celebrity Concert Series returns this fall!

 

We have been anxiously waiting for a LONG time. We have been through countless ticket sales, ticket exchanges for socially distanced seating, cancellations, refunds, shutdowns, lockdowns, wipe downs, and a few meltdowns. We made plans, revised, thought outside of the box, revised again, and thrown our plans completely out the window. We scheduled, rescheduled, and cancelled events but now… it is finally time to get back to what we do best, presenting to you the amazing entertainment of the Celebrity Concert Series 2021-22 Season!

 

The beauty of art, music, and laughter have connected us virtually for the last year, but it will be even better as we experience these season's offerings live – and together! As always, the Utah Symphony is kicking off our season on September 30th.  We are pleased to say that many of the cancelled performances from last season will finally join our stage! Wartime Radio Revue, BYU Ballroom, and William Joseph with the Dixie State Symphony Orchestra are just a few. What else can you expect to see at the Celebrity Concert Series this year? Check out some of the line-up.

 

The Golden Dragon Acrobats are sure to thrill and excite with gravity-defying, family-friendly entertainment. This world touring group has been educating audiences on the art of traditional Chinese acrobatics for over 30 years.  The Drifters are back with their iconic soul sound and polished performance style, serenading the audience with classics “Up On The Roof” and “Under The Boardwalk”.

 

Back for another holiday concert is the whimsical Musical Ireland, presenting the NEW Irish Christmas In America. Complete with Irish step dancing and lively instrumental tunes on fiddle, flute, and harp. Live From Laurel Canyon: Songs and Stories of American Folk Rock is a captivating review of iconic folk groups flourishing in the 60’s and 70’s. Expect anything from

the Byrds to the Eagles in this satisfying look back on a time that shaped American music.

 

Sure to be a crowd-pleaser, The Sharpe Family Singers is a night not to be missed. Falling in love on the performance stage and getting married, the Sharpe’s share their memories and hit Broadway favorites. Each member gives a powerhouse performance and will leave you wanting more.  There truly is something for everyone this season at Celebrity Concert Series.
