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 http://svsummersymphony.org/content/concert-1

“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 http://svsummersymphony.org/content/concert-0

On Friday, April 18, come and enjoy a sweet tradition at the Sun Valley Village.  At 4:30 p.m., everyone  age 10 and under is invited to search for eggs in a huge Easter egg hunt. Children are divided into age groups and asked to bring their own baskets as they scramble around the grounds in front of the Sun Valley Inn, collecting eggs.

Simultaneously, the Village location of the Toy Store will host face painting and children big and small can enjoy ice cream specials at the charming a la mode or satisfy a sweet tooth at the wonderfully nostalgic candy shop, the Chocolate Foundry. It will be a sweet beginning to a memorable holiday weekend.

If you're ten and under, the lawn outside the Sun Valley Inn is the place to be for a madcap Easter egg hunt

Festivities continue on Easter Sunday, April 20, with a lavish Easter brunch. The Inn’s Limelight Room will brim with fresh, tasty and traditional delights, sure to please any age and any palate. Brunch will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please call 208.622.2135 for more information.

April 20 also marks closing day for the snow season on Bald Mountain. Before or after enjoying a bountiful brunch, be sure to get in your last turns of the year. The weather has been beautiful and the corn snow terrific. The final day of the season is traditionally also a chance for locals and visitors alike to dress up, turn their faces to the sun and appreciate the season that was.

Here, last tracks matter as much as first tracks!

Face painting is a great part of the Easter weekend fun
