The Campbell Brothers perform December 12 Sun Valley Opera House

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts Presents:
The Campbell Brothers
Saturday, December 12 at 7:30pm
Sun Valley Opera House
$20 / $30 nonmembers
The Campbell Brothers present “Sacred Steel”: African American gospel music with electric steel guitar accompanying the vocals. This tradition is just now emerging from the House of God Keith Dominion Church, where for sixty years it has been an integral part of worship. As the music moves from sanctuary to concert hall-the group has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music-secular audiences are able to appreciate a performance both devotional and rocking. The Campbell Brothers present a rich variety of material from the African American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire with a new twist: the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar, played as you have never heard it played before.

Sun Valley Announces Plan for River Run Development & Annexation

River Run: A New Neighborhood in Ketchum

Linking mountain recreation, river ecology and downtown Ketchum


Located at the base of the River Run ski lift and gondola, the 140-acre River Run project will transform Sun Valley’s Bald Mountain ski area and link together this incredible mountain recreation resource, the scenic Big Wood River, and downtown Ketchum.

A new pedestrian plaza will form the heart of the new neighborhood, surrounded by a landmark hotel. Beyond the hotel core the plan contains a variety of residences and the Wood River Ecological Park – all connected to Ketchum via transit, pedestrian linkages and a potential future community connector rail system or gondola.

Sun Valley Company and its advisory partners, East West Partners and Design Workshop, have submitted to the City of Ketchum an application for annexation and zoning for River Run. The City is currently reviewing the proposed plan.

This City annexation and zoning process is the crucial first step to making the vision of River Run a reality. The components and benefits of the River Run project will be constructed over many years as market and economic conditions allow. Upon completion, River Run will be a vibrant new neighborhood connecting Ketchum to the ski mountain and containing numerous public benefits.
