The history of the Deer Valley Chamber Music Festival goes back to 1984. It is Utah's oldest Classical Music Festival. Not long ago the name of the Festival changed to Park City International Music Festival, but it didn't have any influence on its fame and popularity. The Festival usually invites outstanding world-class solo artists from all around the world to perform chamber music both in Park City and Salt Lake City. It is to be mentioned that the artist selection here is very strict. You must be a real virtuoso in playing to get to the Festival. But the very this distinguishing trait of the Festival has brought it a world fame during the first three years of its existence.
Since 1984 the International Music Festival has presented over 480 concerts both indoors and out, in Park City, in Coalville, at Carnegie's Weill Hall in New York, in Salt Lake City, at Weber State University in Odgen and in other US cities and towns. The managers of the project are very talented students or ex-students, all professional musicians. It allows them to react very quickly to a rapidly-changing range of music styles and to produce modern performances and music programs from all around the globe.
The International Music Festival has something for everyone. Some years ago the Young Artist Institute was established to assist young artists from different countries of the world. First, the Institute provides the young gifted persons with the opportunity to study along with the professionals. They can make performances together, exchange ideas and experience, and ask professionals for a good advice. Hereafter, the beginners take part in the Festival, and in case of a brilliant performance the Festival does its best to help these people present their music worldwide. A lot of ex-young artists perform now professionally throughout the world in chamber groups, professional orchestras, at festivals and as soloists.
International Music Festival also provides the service nobody can refuse. If you want a really memorable event you may invite International Music Festival to visit your city. The package of services includes not only full-length performances, but also all possible marketing and promotion assistance. The Festival can arrange radio-station visits, promo CDs, advertising posters and flyers, and more. And do not think it is too expensive for you. Not at all! In fact, the program of the Festival is very flexible, so it can be adjusted to every budget. And you don't even need a special concert hall for this event to get arranged.
