Let's get in a bit of a hike and then catch some big band swing! Dance instruction starts at 7:30 and the concert begins at 8:00. Dance talent is not required, but a fun-loving attitude is!

We'll get in a hike of just 2-3 miles, an easy hike, but will be back in time for the dance instruction and concert. Details are below:

Enjoy a free concert with dancing and dance instruction presented by Excellence in the Community, the Wasatch Jazz Project and the library's Viridian Event Center.

Instruction will start at 7:30pm and the band will kick it off at 8pm! The Wasatch Jazz Project A Big Band, founded in 2004 and under the artistic direction of Carol Steffens, is comprised of some of the finest musicians from across the Wasatch Front. This 19 member big band ‘s large repertoire of music includes swingin’ vocal tunes and big band favorites from Cole Porter to hard swinging Buddy Rich. The Wasatch Jazz Project Big Band also takes the big band tradition into the new millennium by playing contemporary compositions by some of today’s top American composers.
