Sun Valley Summer Symphony Free Concert Series – In Focus Series – Made in America, “Minimally Speaking” – July 31 @ 6:00pm

“Tonight we take a journey into minimalism as represented through American classical music.  With the three giants of minimalism on this program, Phillip Glass, Steve Reich and John Adams, you are assured to leave this concert with a true appreciation for this compositional technique.  As a special treat, you will be the first to hear our very own Joe Tompkins’ piece “4 Mbiras” which premieres tonight.” For more information please visit

“As classically trained musicians performing Bach and Brahms to their arrangements of Katy Perry, Kanye West and Justin Timberlake, Time for Three has a melting pot style that exemplifies how difficult it is to classify American classical music.  Tonight Time for Three performs with musicians of the Sun Valley Summer Symphony.  Intrigued?  Then, come early for a good seat – these guys fill the Pavilion!” For more information please visit

We’ll be back at the Sun Valley Resort, celebrating our 20th year.
We have already begun making plans for a celebration of readers, writers, and the Sun Valley community.

It will be a festive weekend, as the Sun Valley Center for the Arts also celebrates their annual Wine Auction. We are working to ensure you’ll be able to enjoy both events.
