The Avett Brothers (pronounced eh-vitt) is a folk rock band from Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Scott and Seth Avett, who play the banjo and guitar respectively, and Bob Crawford who plays the stand-up bass, Joe Kwon, cello, and Jacob Edwards, drums. The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the “heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones.”
Signed by legendary producer Rick Rubin (Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and the Dixie Chicks to name a few) in 2008, the Avett Brothers’ 2009 release “I and Love and You” reached #16 on Billboards’ chart of bestselling albums. Known for their rowdy, infectious live performances, the Avett Brothers’ concert coincides with Sun Valley’s hosting of the National Mountain Bike Championships which is July 14-17.
The Pavilion is one of the most beautiful places in the Wood River Valley to see a concert and the music genres range from full symphony orchestra, to rock n’ roll, to country, to pop, to Opera. There will be something for everyone to enjoy.

The guy said, “If you build it, they will come.” Well, The Holdings built it, and last night they came. There were an estimated 6,000 people Sunday night at the Sun Valley Pavilion and on the lawn on a beautiful, clear and warm August evening.
Garth Brooks showed up and with some help from his beautiful wife Trisha Yearwood, put on a wonderful exhibition of his roots in the music business and his growth to the leading country performer in the world. Who knew that he was such an entertaining story teller? Mixed in with the great music we have all grown up with, and the touching stories of his dear father, he wowed the crowd for over an hour before bringing out the entire Sun Valley Symphony Orchestra for support. (As back-up? Imagine that!)
It sounded like everybody had a good time, from the $10,000 per seat folks dancing in the aisles to “I’ve got Friends in Low Places” to all the real country lovers who lined up on the lawn before dawn, and waited all day for a spot in the sun. By the way, the 360 square foot TV screen made perfect viewing for everybody on the lawn, even those who were left ouside the fence without tickets.
And Garth said it made him think of the “Field of Dreams”

The American Festival Chorus & Orchestra
The American Festival Chorus was founded in the summer of 2008. Dr. Craig Jessop was appointed as Artistic Director and Conductor, with Dr. Cory Evans as Associate Director. Jessop is also Professor of Music and Head of the Department of Music at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. These two appointments follow Dr. Jessop’s distinguished tenure as music director of the world famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir.
The American Festival Chorus has brought together 270 talented singers from a 50-mile radius, including many students from the Music Department at Utah State University and several local high school choral conductors.
The professional American Festival Orchestra is composed of USU music faculty, outstanding musicians in the community and the Northern Utah region and top select senior USU students, Jessop said. Principal strings are the Fry String Quartet, hailed in the New York Times as "a triumph of ensemble playing." The Chorus consists of 260 singers who live within a 50-mile radius of Logan, Utah.
Grammy Award Winning Singer/Songwriter Peter Cetera
As the lead singer and bassist of Chicago, Cetera wrote some of the biggest hits of the rock and pop music era including “If You Leave Me Now,” “Baby, What a Big Surprise,” “You’re the Inspiration,” “Stay the Night,” “Feeling Stronger Every Day” and “Hard To Say I’m Sorry.” Of their 17 albums, three went platinum, nearly all of them went gold and their first four appeared on the best-seller list all at one time. At one point “If You Leave Me Now” was the #1 song in both the U.S. and Britain.
After a successful run with the group, mutual musical differences led to a parting of the ways. Cetera then realized a life-long ambition and launched his career as a solo artist. He won immense popularity and critical praise with his debut solo album, Solitude/Solitaire, which has the unmistakable sound and romantic intensity he has been polishing his entire career.
Cetera has just released his fourth album, One Clear Voice, and the first single, “Forever Tonight,” is skyrocketing up the charts. The single features Cetera with Crystal Bernard of NBC’s hit series “Wings.” Other highlights include pairings with country star Ronna Reeves and “The Lucky Ones,” which features the background vocals of his daughter Claire.

The Trey McIntyre Project will perform at the Sun Valley Pavilion Thursday & Friday, August 27 & 28 at 9.30pm.
Dancer: Ashley Werhun Photographer: Jonas Lundqvist
Trey McIntyre Project is a contemporary ballet company founded in 2004 with the purpose to nurture, support and produce work by one of the world’s most vibrant and sought-after choreographers, Trey McIntyre.
Three short years ago, Trey McIntyre Project burst onto the national dance scene with its debut performances at The Vail International Dance Festival. Trey McIntyre Project’s "fresh and forward-thinking choreography" (Washington Post) was an immediate sensation with both critics and audiences alike. Led by celebrated choreographer Trey McIntyre, whose work has been commissioned by American Ballet Theatre, Stuttgart Ballet, and many other top ballet companies around the world, Trey McIntyre Project also boasts an ensemble of top professional dancers, coming together to further McIntyre’s unique choreographic vision.
Since its first summer season, the Company has gone on to perform at some of the most prestigious venues in the country, including Jacob’s Pillow, Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts and the Aspen Dance Festival, premiering works created during annual summer residencies at White Oak Plantation. Guided by the choreographer’s unparalleled ear for musical structures, Trey McIntyre Project’s repertoire spans classical music (The Blue Boy to Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1), rock (A Day in the Life, set to music by The Beatles and High Lonesome to music by Beck), jazz (Sacred Ellington, a collaboration with opera legend Jessye Norman, and Ma Maison to the Preservation Hall Jazz Band), and historic bluegrass music selections (Go Out).
Because of the overwhelmingly positive critical reception of the Company’s work since its founding in 2004 and the success of its operational model, Trey McIntyre Project incorporated as a non-profit entity in order to be able to support a full-time, international touring company. Trey McIntyre Project made its Company World Debut in its new form at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival August 20, 2008 and now launches a 25-city tour across the United States and abroad during the 2008-09 season. McIntyre’s ambitious new multi-media ballet about the effects of global warming, commissioned jointly by the Wolf Trap National Park and Glacier National Park for its Face of America program, will premiere in the summer of 2009 as part of the Company’s tour across America.
