Utah Symphony Mighty 5 Tour
Following the Utah Symphony concert, Zion’s Bank is sponsoring a drone light show on the Ruby’s Inn Bryce Canyon Rim.
Utah Symphony | Utah Opera stops at Bryce Canyon on August 10, where Associate Conductor Benjamin Manis leads the orchestra in a program featuring two internationally acclaimed (and Utah-based!) singers. Soprano Madison Leonard and baritone Shea Owens will perform a wide collection of Broadway, opera, and American folk music—plus, hear favorites ranging from Aaron Copland’s Hoedown and Simple Gifts to John Williams’ Theme from Jurassic Park.
Get ready to travel back in time to the land of the dinosaurs! Dinosaur Island at Thanksgiving Point is traveling with the Utah Symphony and two creatures from another time: a shy plant-eating Dryosaurus and a fearsome Deinonychus, a cousin to the Utahraptor. This one-of-a-kind experience will transport you to a world of prehistoric wonder. Our experienced team of Dinos Wranglers will also introduce you to some of the babies of Dinosaur Island. You are invited to pet, greet, and get photos with these ancient animals.
What is a Drone Light Show?
Drone light shows are performed by illuminated, synchronized, and choreographed groups of drones that arrange themselves into various aerial formations. Almost any image can be recreated in the sky by a computer program that turns graphics into flight commands and communicates them to the drones.
You need to be on the rim of Bryce Canyon to watch this drone light show. You won’t be able to watch it anywhere else.
This concert and light show is FREE to the public. Shuttle pick up with be at Ebenezer’s Barn and Grill. Please follow parking attendants. Bring a camp chair, coats, and blankets.
