Symphonic Winds to visit Park City
Tuesday, the Salt Lake Symphonic Winds will visit Park City for a free holiday concert at St. Mary’s Catholic Church on S.R. 224.
"We’re a wind ensemble, a nonprofit community organization," said Jim Cash, the group’s president.
The group started in 1993 and is comprised 55 members, mostly band directors, former collegiate musicians and professional players. Based in Salt Lake City, they play a few times a year at venues around the Wasatch-area.
"We rehearse every Tuesday evening," said Cash, "and we play five or six concerts a year."
The group, noted Cash, offers its members a chance to play their instruments and perform, while offering communities a chance to see a the ensemble’s concerts for free. The ensemble’s season lasts roughly from September through May, although they also play a concert in Sugarhouse Park on July 4.
"We purposefully try to get out there so people can hear some good music, and [our] people love to perform."
The Symphonic Winds’ Park City concert will feature a mix of band music and traditional holiday songs. The repertoire will include works by Leonard Bernstein and songs like "Sleigh Ride." The concert will also include a narrated version of the "The Night Before Christmas."
Cash said the show would last about an hour and a half.
"Anyone that likes listening to band music would really enjoy it," he noted. – Matt James

Buses, trains and gondolas doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but they make up the transit alternatives for the mountain transportation system the Central Wasatch Commission is trying to create, mostly in the Cottonwood canyons.
