For those who can't wait for the holidays, enjoy an evening that brings season back a few months early — it's Christmas in July! Get into the festive spirit with classical holiday favorites (Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker," anyone?) and Christmas-themed goodies as Utah Symphony's beautiful summer home welcomes Santa on his summer vacation.

Don't forget to check out the intergalactic battles of "Star Wars" and the magical wizardry of "Harry Potter" in The Music of John Williams concert. This festival favorite brings iconic movie soundtracks from the past 50 years to life — with hits like "Indiana Jones" and "Jurassic Park."

If you're feeling nostalgic, step back in time and pay tribute to the groundbreaking music of legends like Whitney Houston, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, and Carly Simon.

These trailblazing singer-songwriters shaped an era with their raw talent and creative genius, from Joni's introspective Blue album, to Carole's chart-topping hits, to Carly's confessional anthems like "You're So Vain." With a combined total of 17 Grammys (and each having been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), hear this iconic music with the power of a full symphony.

The summer music festival also brings major headliner artists of recent generations such as like Grammy and Tony winner Leslie Odom Jr. who returns to share his sensational talent. Known for his show-stopping performance as Aaron Burr in the smash-hit musical "Hamilton," Odom Jr. is back with his magnetic stage presence and velvet vocals.

For the grand finale, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Cody Fry takes center stage. With his chart-topping hit "I Hear a Symphony" gaining massive success on TikTok and Spotify, Fry's distinctive arrangements and unique style promise to harmonize seamlessly with Utah Symphony's extraordinary musicians.

Chamber orchestra performances featuring popular classical repertoire take place on Wednesday evenings at the picturesque St. Mary's Catholic Church in Park City. This summer, all four chamber orchestra concerts will feature Utah Symphony musicians as soloists highlighting their impressive skillset and musicality.
