Utah Symphony Set for Concert at Dinosaur National Monument

It’s official: the Utah Symphony is playing in Dinosaur National Monument in 2017. Two years ago, the Utah Symphony announced their Mighty 5 tour that staged the symphony at or near Utah’s 5 national parks. The 2014 tour was a huge success drawing thousands to the parks for the unique cultural experience. Not long after, plans began for a second tour that would send the Utah Symphony on the road again seeking further Utah attractions and Dinosaur National Monument is on the list for September 2017. “We will be the last stop on this tour,” shares Senator Kevin VanTassell. “The target is to have the outdoor concert at Split Mountain. There are a lot of logistics to work out but we know it will be the perfect day out there watching the river and listening to the orchestra.” The concert will be free and is expected to provide a boost to the local economy as thousands are expected to attend.
