Homeless Persons' Memorial Candlelight Vigil

To remember and honor men, women and children who died while experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake City in 2019. More than 75 people experiencing homelessness died in Salt Lake City in 2019, many of whom without a proper memorial to call their own. Join us on Thursday, December 19th at 5:30 as members and leaders of our communities gather together to remember those we love and lost. This event is free and open to the public and members of all communities. Together, we can prevent additional loss of life or suffering caused by homelessness through advocacy, education and other initiatives.

Holiday Rock Opera: The Bell Ringer

The show features former Trans-Siberian Orchestra members Jody Ashworth and Valerie Vigoda, and delivers a powerful and inspiring experience in the early TSO tradition, combining rock music with poignant storytelling. The Bell Ringer is the debut album from progressive rock band Symphony North, and it relates a story that builds on the ideas of selflessness and self-worth, employing the talents of musicians hailing from as far as Sweden, Spain, Russia, and Turkey. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.  Featured artists on The Bell Ringer album also include former TSO members Tim Hockenberry (America’s Got Talent semi-finalist) and Michael Lanning, as well as Dream Theater members James LaBrie and Jordan Rudess (voted by Radar Music Magazine as the Best Keyboardist of All Time).

The Bell Ringer

https://live-at-the-eccles.com/events/the-bell-ringer https://artsaltlake.org/production/the-bell-ringer/

Live at the Eccles Presents The Bell Ringer, Thursday, December 19th at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center downtown Salt Lake City. ArtTix is the official source for tickets for Live at the Eccles Events. The new holiday rock opera The Bell Ringer is coming to the Rose Wagner Theater. The show features former Trans-Siberian Orchestra members Jody Ashworth and Valerie Vigoda, and delivers a powerful and inspiring experience in the early TSO tradition, combing rock music with poignant storytelling. The Bell Ringer is the debut album from Seattle-area progressive rock band Symphony North, and it relates a story that builds on the ideas of selflessness and self-worth, employing the talents of musicians hailing originally from as far as Sweden, Spain, Russia, and Turkey. The Bell Ringer album also features members of Dream Theater—James Labrie and Jordan Rudess—weaving anthemic new renditions of Holiday classics with powerful original songs. The show is raising money for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, to give kids not just a gift to open during the Holidays, but the skills to help them build their own futures. The Bell Ringer is a show both rock fans and families can build a new Holiday tradition around, with big performances and a poignant story of selflessness. The story of The Bell Ringer takes place on the night of Christmas Eve, when one destitute man learns, by helping others in simple but important ways, a deeper sense of his own self-worth. The Bell Ringer composer and producer, Peter Orullian—a native Utahn, is a former front man for legendary Seattle bands Heir Apparent and Fifth Angel, who, not many years ago, in a chance meeting, received words of personal encouragement from Paul O’Neill—the late founder and composer of the multi-platinum-selling Trans-Siberian Orchestra—who told Orullian the world needs more Christmas stories and Christmas music, and encouraged him to get his record done. This is going to be a must-attend holiday show, which is also raising money for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.

Charlie Parr

Charlie Parr is the eponymous new album by the Minnesota-based folk blues artist the same name. The album is a collection of new songs and new studio versions of classics/audience favorites from throughout Parr’s career and will be released September 27 on Red House Records. Recorded at Pachyderm Studio in Canon Falls, MN, CHARLIE PARR features Charlie’s trademark resonator guitar and 12-string with co-producer Liz Draper on bass, longtime collaborator Mikkel Beckmen on percussion, Jeff Mitchell on electric guitar, accordion, organ, backing vocals, and Dave Hundrieser on harmonica. The album is an honest and raw recording of Parr reflecting on himself and his career up to this point. It’s a musical reckoning that came after a freak accident less than a year ago that forced him to relearn how to play guitar, causing him to take stock of the songs he’s written over his lifetime. CHARLIE PARR is a stunning folk record that will surely stand the test of time, just like the man himself.
