The 2012 Deer Valley Music Festival will celebrate its third week of Park City concerts featuring the anticipated "1812 Overture" with traditional finale cannon-fire, as well as a program of Broadway rock tunes. The Utah Symphony will perform a lineup of classical favorites with Children's Dance Theater and Tchaikovsky's "1812 Overture" with live cannons from The Cannoneers of the Wasatch Friday, July 27 at 7:30 p.m., an annual Festival tradition led this year by Vladimir Kulenovic for the first time as Associate Conductor. Then, Utah Symphony Principal Pops Conductor Jerry Steichen will lead the Utah Symphony and guest Broadway stars in performances of modern rock hits from Great White Way Saturday, July 28 at 7:30 p.m., with showtunes from "Rent," "Mamma Mia," "Phantom of the Opera," "Dreamgirls" and "The Lion King." I don't know if you can call ABBA "rock," but you get the idea. Both Friday and Saturday performances will be held at the Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater.
