Mayor's Concert Series is Back!
The Provo Mayor’s Series is making a comeback! In years past, the Covey Center for the Arts has set the standard high by hosting bands such as the Beach Boys, STYX, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and others in their impressive Mayor’s Series lineup, and this year continues that entertaining trend.
The series is starting off with a bang! Our first performance will be by the Osmond Chapman Band. Singing sensation David Osmond pairs up with award-winning band leader Caleb Chapman and his orchestra of Utah’s own to create one incredible band. The Osmond Chapman Band always delivers a stunning performance with each show filled with classics, pop songs and even some rock. You’re sure to hear songs you love and even find a few new favorites.
Another classic you won’t want to miss is A Tribute to John Denver, featuring Ted Vigil. The imitation is so well done; audiences feel they’ve been transported back in time to a live John Denver concert. After winning a look-alike contest, Ted has gone on to win many awards and perform at hundreds of venues, bringing us back to a time when John Denver himself was delighting crowds with his music. The most-heard comment after a show is, “I can’t believe how much he looks and sounds like John Denver! It really took us back!”
The Mayor’s Series wouldn’t be complete without our favorite a capella group, Rockapella! These guys have been around for years, we’ve all heard their songs and we still can’t get enough! Rockapella has been around since the early ‘90s and has toured around the globe. They’ve shared their catchy original pop songs, contemporary revisions of Motown, pop and soul classics, and now will be adding their Christmas classics to the eclectic musical line-up.
The Mozart Group comes direct from Poland. They are a comedic string quartet sure to have you cracking up all night! All four members of the Mozart group are well-educated instrumentalists who graduated from prestigious academies of music. Rather than a traditional musical route, they chose to reinvent classical music with their unique, humorous twist—and audiences are asking for more. They’ve shared their talents all over the world and there’s no doubt their show will leave you amused, surprised, amazed and we shouldn’t rule out the possibility of tears.
Ending the Series on a high note, we welcome Catapult Shadow Dance, a troupe of popular contestants from America’s Got Talent. What is Catapult, you ask? Catapult is a theatrical art form using an array of imaginative combinations featuring dance, storytelling and sculpture. You’ll be in awe as you watch these talented performers transform into a mountain, a bicycle, a full-sized elephant, a chapel, a helicopter, and so much more you will have to see to believe.
