Utah Symphony announced its concert lineup for the 2014 Deer Valley Music Festival.

The festival kicks off on July 4 with a patriotic concert featuring the Texas Tenors. Concerts on the main stage at Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater will continue with tributes to the music of John Williams, Neil Diamond, U2 and Disney. Special guests will include Kenny Rogers and Mary Chapin Carpenter, and there will be a joint concert with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir on Aug. 8. The final concert of the festival will be on Aug. 9 and will feature multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Ben Folds.

Utah Symphony’s chamber series will also run as part of the festival with performances at St. Mary’s Church. The concerts will include the work of composers Tchaikovsky, Schubert, Beethoven and more. Utah Symphony music director Thierry Fischer will make his Deer Valley Music Festival conducting debut on Aug. 6.

“The fabulous mountain setting combined with world-class performers alongside the Utah Symphony is the recipe for a perfect summer evening,” Carey Cusimano, vice president of development for Deer Valley Music Festival, said in a news release.

The Deer Valley Music Festival has been considered the summer home of the Utah Symphony and Utah Opera since 2003. All performances will be at the Deer Valley Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater, 2250 Deer Valley Drive South, Park City, or St. Mary’s Church, 121 Park Ave., Park City.
