The National Park Service is pleased to announce that the Symphony Of The Canyons will perform on September 12th at Pipe Spring National Monument.
Pipe Spring National Monument Superintendent John Hiscock stated: "This is a wonderful partnership between the National Park Service and the Symphony; their initial performance in 2013 was a huge draw and they repeated that success in 2014. We are so pleased to host the Symphony again this year. The partnership and performance supports the Park Service's initiative of providing arts in the parks experiences and helps build community relations. We look forward to a relaxing early evening performance in an historic setting, and, hopefully, with a beautiful sunset as a backdrop. The National Park Service extends its thanks to Symphony Executive Director Betty Colston and founder and Conductor Kortney Stirland for making this concert at Pipe Spring a reality."
The Symphony will perform a mix of pieces that everyone is sure to enjoy, from soothing strings to bossy brass and maybe even a little toe-tapping steel drum music.
The concert will take place on Saturday, September 12th at 5:45 PM – Mountain Standard Time, or Arizona time (that is 6:45 PM Mountain Daylight Time, or Utah time). The public is encouraged to arrive at approximately 5:15 PM and bring camp chairs for seating. No fees will be charged for this performance and there are no entrance fees for the Monument, for those arriving after 5:00 PM (MST). Pipe Spring National Monument is approximately 21 miles from Kanab, Utah, and 60 miles from St. George, Utah – just off of Arizona Hwy. 389 between the two.
