Gershwin at the Deer Valley Music Festival

Earlier this spring, we attended the Utah Symphony’s Family Concert of Gershwin’s Magic Key. It was a musical biography of the composer George Gershwin and introduced us to many of his most famous works. When we saw that one of the events for the Deer Valley Music Festival this summer was a performance of Gershwin hits, we decided to go hear the full pieces in this wonderful atmosphere.

We have gone to concerts at the Deer Valley Music Festival before, and have always enjoyed getting a chilly break from the summer heat. We experienced a short cloud burst and afterwards it was the perfect conditions for a rainbow! This concert was great because one of the preeminent Gershwin pianists in the world was performing. The camera did close-ups of his hands while he was playing and showed it on the big screens to either side of the stage. It was mesmerizing!

It isn’t always an easy trip to drive up to Park City and back to Salt Lake in the concert traffic at night, but we had a great time together as a family. On our way to the concert, we stopped for take-out dinner from Freshie’s Lobster Co. which was recently voted as having the best lobster rolls. They were delicious and tasted even better accompanied by the beautiful music and surroundings.
