Sun Valley may not offer the massive stadiums of large cities, but big-name musicians seem to be drawn to our majestic mountain acoustics nonetheless.
In August of 2008, Sun Valley Resort unveiled the Sun Valley Pavilion, new home to the Sun Valley Summer Symphony. The Sun Valley Summer Symphony is the largest privately funded free-admission symphony in America. Under the leadership of Maestro Alasdair Neale since 1995, the orchestra has grown to more than 100 players and presents free concerts to over 50,000 people annually. Bring a picnic and sit on the lawn or arrive early for seating inside the Sun Valley Pavilion. No matter where you sit, you will enjoy the sound of world-class music.
From world-famous headliners to neighborhood jam bands, the hills are alive with the sound of music in Sun Valley. Our event schedule is packed with musical events that everyone will love. In the summer, most days of the week are filled with free outdoor concert offerings, and weekends are full of world-class artists. In the winter, music is still alive indoors and often in the streets.
The Sun Valley Center for the Arts provides music-lovers with a wide-ranging slate of musical events as part of the seasonal performing arts series. Indoor and outdoor concerts include world and popular music (the Avett Brothers, Lyle Lovett, Michael Franti, Carole King and James Taylor, Ben Sollee, Jake Shimabakuro).
Experience a wide variety of theater, ranging from mini ballerinas performing the Nutcracker to the Fool's full-fledged stage productions of 'Our Town' and the 'Glass Menagerie'--brought to you by the local talents at the nexStage Theatre, St. Thomas Playhouse and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts/Company of Fools.
