The Celebrity Concert Series returns

By DSU College of the Arts

The Celebrity Concert Series returns the first week of October with the Utah Symphony kicking off the season, along with a special classical performance of the Fremont String Quartet.

The Utah Symphony will perform on October 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the M.K. Cox Performing Arts Center on the Dixie State Campus. Tickets for the event are $30 and available for purchase at the Dixie State Ticket Office.

For over 60 years the Celebrity Concert Series has provided exceptional standards of performance art entertainment for the community. This year welcomes the addition of the Classical Choice Series featuring three groups, including The Fremont String Quartet comprised of principal musicians from the Utah Symphony. Introducing new matinee and evening performances held in the Delores Dore´ Eccles Fine Arts Center, patrons can fully enjoy the acoustics of world-class classical performers in a world-class space.

“The decision to move classical pieces into the Eccles Concert Hall is going to heighten performance and give the patrons the full sound that they might not hear in a larger auditorium. We have a world-class space that we now can fill with world-class artists,” said Ginger Nelson, the Interim Director of Arts Programming.

Keeping with the tradition of presenting extraordinary entertainment to southern Utah, the 2019-20 season of performances is sure to uplift and inspire. From the mesmerizing storytelling and innovative mechanical staging of Cirque Mechanics, to the toe tapping vintage music of a World War II U.S.O. bandstand in Wartime Radio Revue, and award-winning Gaelic singer Julie Fowlis, the selection is sure to elicit a new favorites.

In addition to our regular season the BYU Ballroom Dance Company will return on March 21 as a CCS featured event with tickets available to the general public in December. As a special thank you, all ticket package holders will be granted access to advanced sales on November 4. It is not too late to become a season ticket holder and take advantage of this opportunity to secure your seats to BYU Ballroom Dance Company a month before the general public.
