PARK CITY, Utah — Coming to the Park City Institute’s (PCI) Main Stage this holiday are back-to-back performances by Grammy award winner Mark O’Connor on December 17 and Billboard Chart regulars, Canadian Brass on December 18. These shows are great kick-offs into the holiday week as an outing with friends, family, or a date night.
The fiddler and composer O’Connor returns to the PCI to play bluegrass Christmas classics alongside his wife Maggie, who sings and also plays fiddle. O’Connor’s album “An Appalachian Christmas” is celebrated by the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times as a top 10 holiday album. This performance is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 17.
O’Connor has played with artists like Yo-Yo Ma, James Taylor, Alison Krauss, and Johnny Cash.
For the first time ever, Canadian Brass will grace the main stage for a holiday show. The band tours globally and has sold over 2 million albums worldwide. Canadian Brass is known for its fun and interactive performances. The show is at 3 p.m. on Sunday, December 18 and is part of the Park City Institute Chamber Music Series.
“Canadian Brass is huge,” said Ari Ioannides, executive director for the Park City Institute. “Their show is poppier, a lot of fun. They come out with their white sneakers and their black suits, and they are very animated. I’m thrilled to have them as a big fan of theirs from way back and to hear them do a Christmas show, it’s just going to be a huge thrill.”
