Vonda Shepard, the so-called "voice of `Ally McBeal,' " will be sharing that voice with Utahns tonight.

A composer as well as a seasoned performer, Shepard primarily covers "oldies" for the popular television series. But her concert gigs include songs more of her own choosing, including her own compositions.Shepard's show tonight kicks off the Red Butte Garden Summer Concert Series. Gates to the garden open at 5:30 p.m., with showtime set for 6:30 p.m.

Tickets, which are $16 for adults or $8 for children, will be available at the gate. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to Kingsbury Hall.
