Upcoming Lectures

01/21 Affirming the Example of Mahatma Gandhi Deb Sawyer, President, Gandhi Alliance for Peace

The Gandhi Alliance for Peace was created after a group of peace activists organized a Salt March at the Great Salt Lake on Gandhi’s birthday in 1998. Highlights of our work since 1998 include our now annual Gandhi Birthday Celebration, raising funds to help Afghanistan reduce landmine casualties, and educational programs for the Utah public schools. We also raised the funds for a statue of Gandhi which was placed just outside the new Family Justice Center at the YWCA. While this presentation will provide a brief history of the Gandhi Alliance for Peace, we also hope to facilitate a discussion of the relevance and legacy of Gandhi’s work.

01/28 The U of U and PAC-12 Barbara Smith

The impact of the U of U joining the Pac-12 goes far beyond the teams we see on the football field, affecting academic disciplines and even reaching into the greater Salt Lake City community.

A home is the biggest purchase most of us will ever make, and in real estate, you make money when you buy -- not when you sell. Loving the house is not enough. How do you keep yourself from making a colossal mistake? Let's start by talking about what to look for in a home, how to evaluate its "Quality of Life" and its investment value. We'll discuss pitfalls and how to avoid them; finance options which best meet your needs; the hidden costs of buying; and "secret" ways to pay legitimate closing costs. We'll take you step-by-step through the buying process from preparation to closing, including how to package, present and negotiate your offer. A Saturday field trip to see houses provides real-world examples of our discussions.

Park City Live 427 Main Street, Park City, UT 84060, USA

Citi Presents: Billboard Winterfest featuring Alesso on Friday, January 30th!!

With over 3.5 million followers online, YouTube views in the millions, and fans including Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, Pete Tong, Avicii and Swedish House Mafia, Grammy nominated producer Alesso already has a huge following thanks to his hugely popular remixes and sold-out shows around the globe. His new single, ‘Tear The Roof Up, and forthcoming debut album, are set to be the tipping point that takes Alesso from dancefloor hero to household name.

Beginning his career five years ago as a self-taught 18 year-old bedroom producer in Stockholm, Sweden, Alessandro Lindblad’s trajectory to the forefront of the global dance floor is truly incredible. He began by tinkering with other people’s songs, creating his own edits, adding piano riffs and melody ideas, and uploading his versions to Beatport. Alesso’s efforts reached Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, who swiftly took the teen under his wing, becoming his mentor, and signing him to his management and label. Alesso made an impressive entrance with the ‘Taking It Back’ remix of Avicii’s ‘Alcoholic’, but it was his addition of a classic house drop to Nadia Ali’s ‘Pressure’ that helped the single become one of the most played dance tracks of 2011. Swiftly unleashing a barrage of brilliant remixes for Swedish House Mafia, Devolution and LFMAO, the then teenager was named EDM Artist To Watch by MTV.

Over the course of the last five years, Alesso has amassed 2.5m Facebook Likes, 900k Twitter followers and 370k Instagram followers, while on YouTube he’s hit over 100m plays to date. A man clearly in love with music and life, Alesso’s ethos is all about living in the moment. He’s an impassioned producer seeking out life’s highs while defying genre, expectation and convention.

“I don’t ever want to make just another club song,” Alesso insists. “‘Electronic music’ sometimes feels like it’s all about the money; I can say one hundred per cent that I didn’t start doing this to make money. The main reason why I make music is to bring a message; I want to uplift people though music, I want to inject emotion into dance music. I want people to scream, jump, feel happiness. Explosive happiness. The best thing about music is it has no rules; I love the idea of breaking the rules.”
