Utah Lyric Opera: Ronan Tynan in Concert

Monday, October 18
7:30 p.m.
Covey Center for the Arts - Performance Hall

$15, $20,  $30 - Click here to purchase tickets

Though Ronan enjoyed singing as a boy, he did not seriously consider formal voice study until he was 33, when he was well into his residency as a physician. His quick success is a typical development in a life of extraordinary achievement. Born with lower limb disability that threatened to sideline him throughout his childhood, Tynan was still “as wild as a March hare” when he was a growing boy, riding horses and racing motorcycles.  When he was twenty, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after an auto accident caused serious complications. Just weeks after the operation, he was climbing up the steps of his college dorm, and within a year, he was winning gold medals in the Paralympics as a multitalented athlete. Between 1981 and 1984, Tynan amassed eighteen gold medals and fourteen world records of which he still holds nine.
The determination instilled in Ronan by his parents, a diminutive couple with gigantic ambitions for their son, soon propelled him to conquer a whole new field. Tynan became the first disabled person ever admitted to the National College of Physical Education. He later became a full-fledged medical doctor, specializing in orthopedic sports injuries, with a degree from prestigious Trinity College.

Ronan won both the John McCormack Cup for Tenor Voice and the BBC talent show Go For It less than one year after beginning the study of voice.  The following year, he won the International Operatic Singing Competition in Maumarde, France.  He made his operatic debut as Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, and cut his teeth on the concert repertoire in performances of Verdi’s Requiem, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Handel’s Messiah, Rossini’s Stabat Mater, and Puccini’s Messa di Gloria.  In 1998, Tynan joined Anthony Kearns and John McDermott (later Finbar Wright) as The Irish Tenors, an instant worldwide sensation.  His autobiography Halfway Home was published in February of 2002.

Brigham Young University

The BYU Merit Badge Pow Wow has been run for more than 50 years and is one of the largest Scout Pow Wows in the United States.

At this PowWow, the general format is group instruction with expert presenters accompanied by merit badge counselors who will work with the Scouts during the PowWow sessions; however, this group experience should be accompanied by parent and local unit attention to each Scout’s projects and his ability to fulfill all merit badge requirements. Attending group instruction does not, by itself, qualify a Scout for any merit badge—he must complete all merit badge requirements as well.

Please check BYU's website for more information.

The Haunted Forest isn't like any other haunted house because it takes place in a REAL forest- with all the creepy, natural ambiance to go with it. There aren't any walls to protect you from the horrors that lurk in the trees, and no roof to keep out the howling October winds.

This adventure is not for the faint of heart... With nearly an HOUR of winding trails and mesmerizing "points of interest", this is TWICE as long as the average haunted house. Don't delay the thrill of a lifetime!

TERROR TICKET: Psycho Manor & Haunted Forest & Haunted Mansion Show Combined $20.00
Kids 6 and under FREE
$2 off coupon

Ya-Ya Sisterhood Party

Saturday, October 16
6:00-9:00 pm
Thanksgiving Point Emporium
Free!

Hosted by B98.7’s radio host Erin, the annual Ya-Ya Sisterhood party will feature palm readers, decorative hats, one-of-a-kind holiday items, tastings from Harvest Restaurant, and fabulous local vendors. Attendees are encouraged to don their most over-the-top finery and baubles. The fancy dresses, gaudy jewelry and feather boas should also be accompanied by extravagant headdresses – and no headdress is too grand or outrageous.

A GUIDE TO ATTENDING YOUR FIRST YA-YA SISTERHOOD PARTY

Put on the Ritz
Ruffles, bows, fancy dresses, and feather boas….nothing is too “over-the-top” for the Ya-Ya Sisterhood Party. Have a grand cocktail ring but no fancy parties to wear it to? Get a few more to keep it company and wear it. Frippery, regalia, finery, and baubles are all part of the evening’s magic.

Wear a Headdress
Wearing your own special headdress is the crowning touch, a way to transform the everyday you into an extraordinary Ya-Ya Sister. Making the headdress to express your true, beautiful inner self is all part of the fun. You don’t have to be artistic or even “crafty” to create the most stupendous, outrageous, and unique headdress in the world. Obtain a “base hat” from your closet, the attic, or a vintage shop. Use supplies at hand or visit a craft store.

Princesses and Her Majesties
It’s true that we can’t choose our own name at birth, but we can name ourselves as a member of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Come to the Ya-Ya Sisterhood Party with your new name and join us to be officially named in your Very Special Naming Ceremony. The goal is to honor each other, welcome your new name, and celebrate the glorious uniqueness of each one of you.

The Scarlet Pimpernel

The Scarlet Pimpernel
Oct. 14 - Nov. 27

Already a well-known and loved as a book (by Baroness Orczy) and a movie (starring Jane Seymour and Anthony Andrews), this musical adaptation of THE SCARLET PIMPERNEL has it all: love, betrayal, humor, political intrigue, and swashbuckling swordplay all intertwined with stunning costuming, incomparable music, and unforgettable lyrics. Join the hilarity and passion to be found in "seeking here and seeking there" for the ever elusive Pimpernel.

Hutching Museum
55 N. Center St. Lehi

How would the “wizarding world” look at the Hutchings Museum?

Come and see as we celebrate the Halloween season with live owls, a scavenger hunt, and enchanted rock puppets on two evenings of magical fun! Watch potions demonstrations, listen to tales of mythical creatures, and meet famous wizards and witches. It will be possible to buy “galleons” (spending money) at $1 each for the wizard marketplace with charmed candy at Honeyduke's Candy Shop, the Magic Stone Store and more.

All are invited to dress in costume for the occasion. The Museum will be closed between 3:00pm to 5:00pm in preparation for the event.

Lindsay Aline LIVE in Concert

Saturday, October 9
8:30pm - 10:00pm
Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Jeanne' Wagner Theatre

138 West 300 South
Salt Lake City, Utah

$10-15

Lindsay Aline's (pronounced "ah-leen") music is a fresh and sophisticated blend of rock, pop, and classical genres. Bringing together North American and European vocal techniques, her signature voice is unique in its combination of style and range - Sissel meets Evanescence. Her music is dramatic and mysterious at times - without being dark or negative - and light and lyrical at others. 

As a lyricist, Lindsay probes the human struggle while maintaining an overall hopeful outlook. "Her music makes me happy," is a common comment. Her audience spans a large age range and includes people who appreciate multiple genres of music. Organizers say that the live show will be ratcheted up in energy level over the album released last year. For an album sample, visit: lindsayaline.com.

Tickets are available here.

P.S. For those of you who know the Blodgetts, Lindsay is Julie Blodgett's sister.
