Humanity Unleashed @ Ragan Theater in the Sorensen Student Center |  |  |

Take a journey through the vast range of human emotions as the Men’s Choir and Women’s Choir tells vulnerable stories of humanity. As Johnny Depp sagely noted, “Music touches us emotionally, where words alone can’t.” Music is an international language that transcends all boundaries and builds the invisible bridges, highways and tunnels that connect our hearts. More music means more connections and more connections means a better world for all of us.

Ouça - Listen @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Salt Lake City, Utah, April 26, 27 & 28, 2018: Samba Fogo proudly presents Ouça – Listen, an evening of live music and dance, on fire!

Drawing on rich Afro-Brazilian culture and mythology, Samba Fogo will ignite the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center, as they weave traditional and contemporary dance, fire spinning, and diverse live music. Ouça – Listen will feature original musical compositions, sound scores, and high-energy choreography, performed by a cast of over 35 spectacular artists including a dance company of 12. The live band for this year’s concert includes vocalists Solange Gomes and George Edgar Brown, hailing from São Paulo and Brasilia, Brazil. These talented vocalists will be backed by a string quintet, a horn line, and a mobile “bateria” Brazilian drum line – a diverse and dynamic orchestra, providing a rhythmic and musical backdrop inspired by traditions from Cuba, Africa, and Brazil. With this unique concert, Samba Fogo hopes to inspire audiences to listen – to themselves, to others, to the Earth, and of course, to good live music. Dancers will work with natural elements to inspire an honoring of the Earth in their movements.

Ouça – Listen will take audiences on a journey from deeply-rooted dance traditions of Africa and Brazil, through classic samba music and dance styles, all the way to the ornate costuming and fancy footwork of Brazilian Carnival celebrations.

Samba Fogo’s annual Spring Concert has gained a reputation for providing audiences an exciting, culturally rich, and heart-pounding experience. It has become a local tradition over the years, drawing audiences from all over the Western United States.

Die Like a Diva @ Centre Stage in the Sorensen Student Center | Orem | Utah | United States

Witness the deaths of opera’s greatest characters, narrated by the Grim Reaper himself. Death scenes from Madame Butterfly, Carmen, La Boheme, Rigoletto, Werther and more, will leave you reaching for your hanky to wipe away your tears – or your dagger to do away with yourself! Observe and shudder as opera sheds light on the darker side of man’s ending.

Nibble on the lighter side of opera with scenes from Candide, Merry Widow, Die Fledermaus and more. At the same time, nibble from a delicious sampling of appetizers with French, German and Hungarian flavors to enhance the palate and seduce the spirit of the evening. We tickle and tease both the funny bone and the appetite.

Range 2 River Relay @ Utah State Fairpark
May 12 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Range 2 River Relay @ Utah State Fairpark |  |  |

The third-annual Range 2 River Relay, on May 12th, is an active transportation team relay to explore the conditions of the Salt Lake Valley’s waterways from pristine headwaters to buried creeks and channelized canal to meandering river.

Teams consist of a biker, boater, and runner. The first teammate bikes the path of City Creek, continuing as the creek flows underground into the stormwater system. This leg ends at the creek’s confluence with the Jordan River, the historic Utah State Fairpark property. The second teammate boats the Jordan River northward, following the river as it turns from a channelized canal to a meandering, healthy river. This leg ends at 1800 North. The Jordan River Trail is utilized for the final stretch of the race. The final teammate runs past native riparian vegetation and invasive invaders, finishing back at the Utah State Fairpark.

Come learn about local causes and enjoy bites, drinks, and tunes at the Finish Line Celebration. Spectators watch as participants finish the bike leg, start the boat leg, and come into the finish line on the final running leg. Cheer on your favorite team as they finish the race. Make sure to stay for the crowning of this years’ Range 2 River Relay champions!
