The Mundi Project Piano Ambassadors Present “Sunset Sounds in the Valley”

Founded in 2006, The Mundi Project provides open access to pianos and innovative performance opportunities that incorporate all the arts. Their focus is on, but not limited to, the piano. Unique to the Salt Lake area, the Mundi Project provides a strong commitment to multidisciplinary arts outreach through concerts and workshops for the community.

Tonight’s performers are part of the Mundi Project Piano Ambassador program with special guests from the Gifted School, BYU and the Manhattan School of Music. These young artists range from the ages of 8-26. You will hear a magnificent variety of music from the Baroque era through the 20th century. Accompanying the music are visual images created by youth from Mundi Project visual art workshops. This program is made possible by the generous support of Zoo, Arts, and Parks, the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, and individuals like you. We hope you enjoy this evening’s multimedia fusion piano concert.

Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Aug 2 all-day
Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution @ Utah Museum of Contemporary Art
Raivo Puusemp: Dissolution is the first comprehensive overview of Puusemp’s work produced between the mid-1960s and late 1970s. Puusemp is a conceptual artist who is interested in steering people into unwittingly completing his pieces by taking an action the artist had laid out as the next obvious step.

Puusemp’s collection of press clippings, council meeting minutes and public documents from his brief stint as mayor of Rosendale (1975-1976), a small village, plagued by an overbearing tax structure and problems with its municipal utilities. Puusemp saw his position as an opportunity to take a political problem and morph it into an art work.

Tunes and Tales from the Cowboy Trails @ Utah Cultural Celebration Center

Enjoy “Tunes and Tails from the Cowboy Trails”, a nostalgic ride through the music that shaped the West. Small part lecture and large part music – performed live – and set to historical photography, Hired Guns will help you rediscover (or just discover!) songs like The Streets of Laredo, Ghost Riders in the Sky and The Marshal and the Outlaw and the stories behind them. It’s 90 minutes of story and music you won’t soon forget.

Come early to meet Lannie “The Marshal” Scopes and Craig “Creek” Johnson before the show at the National Night Out, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The Utah Old Time Fiddlers will be on hand, along with other entertainment for your viewing and listening pleasure. National Night Out includes free food, entertainment, emergency preparedness displays, a visit from McGruff, bouncy houses, and face painting for kids. National Night Out is a way to help build community relationships between neighbors and the City. It is the Nation’s premier anti-crime and drug abuse event. A special “meet-and-greet” with the Mayor and City Council is also scheduled.

This is one summer show you do not want to miss! More info at wvc-ut.gov/nno
