Upcoming Main Stage Events


It Gets Better + The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus
Saturday February 9

It Gets Better is a newly revamped artistic collaboration with the world-famous San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus. The It Gets Better Tour brings the experience and message of the online It Gets Better Project to communities and audiences by blending music, theater, and multimedia into a work for the stage.  The cast brings to life real stories from gay, lesbian, transgender, and straight allies from around the country.  With the It Gets Better Tour, a small but dedicated ensemble travels to communities nationwide to produce a week of educational workshops culminating in this moving musical theater performance.  They will bring their mission to uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth, for a week of outreach. They will lead workshops in city and county government offices, schools, and other non-profits, developing community resources and connections. The week culminates in a Main Stage performance - equal parts wit, whimsy, empowerment and inspiration. Click here to learn more about the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus

8th Annual Saints and Sinners Ball
Saturday March 16, 2019

Mischief, mayhem and perhaps a little madness take over as we gather, once again, at the St. Regis Deer Valley, for the Saints and Sinners Ball to support the Student Outreach Programs of the Park City Institute. Shenanigans and high-jinx, auctions, a champagne sabering, plus traditional Irish fare and libations conspire to create an evening that is decidedly whimsical. Clever costumes abound.


Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy and Family
Saturday February 16

Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy have turned raising a family into an award-winning art form—literally bringing up their six children to live and perform in an infusion of Celtic music and dance. The award-winning musicians have earned numerous awards—including Grammy Awards and Canada’s Juno and East Coast Music awards—for their brand of high-energy fiddling, dancing and singing. Along with their lads and lasses, MacMaster and Leahy are on a musical mission to continue Celtic arts traditions, around the globe. If you’re not Irish when you take your seat, we cannot guarantee you won’t be by the final curtain call. Click here to learn more about Natalie MacMaster & Donnell Leahy and family

Birds of Chicago
Saturday March 23, 2019

Get ready to discover “secular gospel” - a new brand of Americana music which evolved from a professional/personal merger. JT Nero and Allison Russell are the husband-and-wife team who first met when he was with JT and the Clouds, and she was with Po’ Girl, and their bands took turns opening for each other at gigs on either side of the US/Canadian border. Along the way, they became creative parters, life partners, and forged ahead to front a new band: Birds of Chicago Through elbow grease, Kickstarter campaigns, guerilla-style performances at festivals, they found finding critical acclaim from NPR, the London Telegraph, Paste, and Slant—and a major label debut. Their music itself is about discovery—including the ways in which Americana music absorbs our many cultures and ideas, turning it into tunes that are by turns fun, flirty, thoughtful and romantic. http://www.birdsofchicago.com/
