Hershey Theatre

The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.

With multiple performance areas set up throughout Washington Square, this year's Salt Lake City Jazz Festival boasts an impressive lineup of jazzy folk who can do more than just imitate bop—they can actually bebop. Help kick off the festival with the Friday, July 9, tribute to Motown, soul, and funk, featuring Ellis Hall and his band playing the hits of artists such as Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson. Other July 9 performers include the vocal quartet Fifth Avenue, who will woo tapping toes with intricate harmonies and swinging beats. On Saturday, performers such as the Rippingtons, Eddie Daniels, Phat Tiger, and the Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra will tickle ears without invading personal space, paving the way for Sunday's performance by Hollywood hotshot Seth MacFarlane, best known as the creator and primary voice actor behind Fox's Family Guy. MacFarlane, a capable singer in his own right, will sing American songbook standards from the likes of Sinatra and Crosby while backed by the Salt Lake City Jazz Orchestra. Check out the entire lineup and descriptions here. If you drop by the festival on Sunday, also take advantage of the free music clinics open to sound makers of all ages and skill levels.
