Re: “COMMUNITY BALLET MASTER CLASSES WITH JEREMY BLANTON

I went to his class this morning and it was easily one of my favorite master classes I've ever been to! He was so nice and clear in his instructions. The way he taught was easy to understand and he was very efficient! Would love to go to another one of his classes someday!

Re: “Bonnie "Prince" Billy

This show was absolutely fantastic and mind-blowing, the best I'll see this year no doubt. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy was in fine form, penetratingly and powerfully enunciating every trenchant (and delightfully flippant) lyric and bending all the notes into new-never-before-played-despite-being-old fireworks. Mythic!! Wow!!!! He gave 200%. And all the backstories for songs!!! Matt Sweeny's presence took it up another notch, and David Ferguson was a nice surprise bonus. Not only did he do a fantastic set list, he opened up for requests near the end. (As usual, "New Partner" and "I See A Darkness" were probably the most vocalized requests.) I requested "No Match," but too quietly. He truly lives his art, and it shows. Constant singing and the sorting/arranging of poetry/ideas are the blood that animates his body. We were so lucky to get a rare appearance from him. I'm still riding the high. Thank you, BPB!

Re: “Kenny Rogers Utah Symphony

As a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, I want to express my anger with Kenny Rogers' disrespectful performance last night. I am not a Democrat, but no performer should be allowed to disrespect the President of the United States, especially on our 4th of July weekend celebration!

My wife & I have attended numerous concerts at Deer Valley over the past few years. Most have been very good and a few have been outstanding. But, Kenny Rogers' concert was insulting. He has lost his singing ability. He cannot hold a tune, is terribly pitchy, and often incomprehensible. His concert ruined memories of many tunes my wife and I have treasured over the years.

Still, we could have been sympathetic to an icon who continues to perform well past the time he should have retired. What we cannot forgive are his rudeness, arrogance and insults toward the President of the United States. He should be ashamed, admonished, and never...NEVER again be invited to perform at Deer Valley or any other respectable venue.
