One of our favorite things to do during the gorgeous Park City summer is to take in as many live concerts as possible. Luckily, there are several venues around the area that offers everything from jazz to classic rock. And we love the programming presented by Mountain Town Music – one of the premier music presenters in the area. According to their website:
“We exist to produce, foster, and support live music which enhances the cultural experience for Park City and Summit County residents and visitors.
Bringing the Music: Mountain Town Stages
We present a bouillabaisse of music to stimulate the sense of groove for music lovers, life-lovers, and everybody in between. We believe in the power of music and are creating one community under a groove with every show that we program -whether it be at a rodeo ground in Peoa, Main Street in Coalville, or in the mountains of Park City.”
