It will continue for six weeks with pops, classical, and chamber music concerts at Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater and St. Mary’s Church.

"We love being in residence in the beautiful mountain community of Park City, the summer home of Utah Symphony," said President and CEO Melia Tourangeau. "We look forward to sharing many spectacular evenings under the stars at the Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheatre, inside the intimate venue at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, and in private homes throughout Summit County experiencing fantastic music with fellow Utahans and friends from around the country. We are committed to expanding upon the Deer Valley Music Festival, making each year bigger and better than the last, and are excited to spend the summer connected to the Park City community with new and old friends alike!"

Utah Symphony’s new Associate Conductor Rei Hotoda, who begins her role in September 2015, will make her Utah Symphony debut as a conductor and pianist performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12 in A Major, K. 414 at the first chamber concert of the 2015 Deer Valley Music Festival season at St. Mary’s Church on July 8, 2015.
