Albion Grill, Alta Ski Area Alta, UT, USA

Trees are vital not only to the beauty of the mountains, but to the health of our watersheds and the operation of resorts like Alta Ski Area. We hope you’ll join us to discover a whole new side of Alta by joining us to plant 1,500 native trees along with the Alta Environmental Center! Both rugged and rewarding; this will be a fun opportunity to enjoy the Wasatch Mountains and give back to the beautiful Little Cottonwood Canyon.

Registration is REQUIRED HERE. Find more details on our website HERE.

Bring: Protective clothing (from sun, rain or other elements), sturdy closed-toe footwear, water bottle, gloves, sunscreen and a pack to carry these belongings.

A light breakfast will be provided including donations of coffee and tea from Starbucks and bagels from Einstein Bros Bagels, as well as bars from KIND Healthy Snacks. The Albion Grill will be offering 25% off food for volunteers to enjoy lunch after planting.

We need 100 motivated volunteers (ages 14+). Online registration is required because we need to know your hiking abilities to keep the event fun and safe. Some groups will ride lifts and some will hike to plant, but all will be in intermediate to advance mountain terrain. Please indicate your hiking ability on the registration form. Invite friends and family via our Facebook event page.

Wing Chun offers a complete system of self defense which has its origins in the Shaolin Temple of the Honan province in China. At Shaolin many of the “animal styles” of kung fu were taught including snake, tiger, crane, etc. Some time during the 16th century the temple was destroyed by the ruling Manchu government and only five temple members managed to escape. One of them, a nun named Ng Mui, survived and through her eventually evolved the system which became known as Wing Chun.

The Springville Museum presents "Passages and Pathways" - Opening Reception

September 09, 2015 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

(Save to cal)

The Springville Museum 126 East 400 South, Springville, UT 84663, USA

Sept 8th through Nov 1st we have the opportunity to see what glass can do in the hands of the masters. 
 The Springville Museum presents “Passages and Pathways” 
featuring the artwork of;
Jack Bowman • Dan Cummings • Mark Degraffenreid • Jenkyn Powell
Kerry Transtrum • Stephen Teuscher • Brian Usher

As art mediums go, glass is magical. It’s shiney, sharp, flowing yet hard, an accident of nature and a triumph of engineering. Light lives in it and is transformed by it. It is way we are transfixed to our computer/TV screens... it’s all just colored glass you know. Manipulating something this otherworldly, takes nifty tools, know-how, talent and even a little bravery. 

As a fledgling glass artist moving to town in the 80s’s I was fortunate enough to work with some regional masters. Cutting glass with Dan Cummings, Jenkyn Powell, Willy Littig and the late great Paul Frisbee was akin to my kids cutting thier basketball teeth watching  John Stockton and Carl Malone  each night. We are spoiled here in the west with such a deep talent pool. Here is your chance to take a dip.

Music: Bronco

Bronco began as a solo project for Tyler Anderson back in 2004 and soon grew to a five piece band. A little bit country, a little bit rock & roll, Tyler's songwriting has a heavy emphasis on storytelling, particularly down-on-their-luck folks who can't seem to catch a break. Anything from ghosts to the gold rush have all wound up as the subject matter of a Bronco tune.

The band released "Constant Everything" in 2007, followed by the "You're Too Good" EP in 2010 and "Painting Pictures of a Perfect Life" in 2011. Bronco's third album, "In Lights" was released in November 2014.

Encore screenings of the original West End production of The Audience, captured live in London in 2013, feature an exclusive Q&A with Stephen Daldry and Helen Mirren.

  • ‘Helen Mirren is smashing. Her Majesty will see you now’ New York Times

For sixty years, Queen Elizabeth II has met with each of her twelve Prime Ministers in a private weekly meeting. This meeting is known as The Audience. No one knows what they discuss, not even their spouses.

From the old warrior Winston Churchill, to the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair right up to today’s meetings with the current incumbent David Cameron, the Queen advises her Prime Ministers on all matters both public and personal. Through these private audiences, we see glimpses of the woman behind the crown and witness the moments that shaped a monarch.

The Audience has received three 2015 Tony Award nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play (Helen Mirren), Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role (Richard McCabe) and Best Costume Design (Bob Crowley). The production has also been nominated for 6 Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Outstanding New Broadway Play), 4 Drama League Awards (including Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play) and 2 Drama Desk Awards (including Outstanding Actress in a Play).

The Audience is written by Peter Morgan (The Queen) and directed by two-time Tony Award® winner and Academy Award-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours), and was presented in the West End by Matthew Byam Shaw for Playful Productions, Robert Fox and Andy Harries.

Encore screenings feature a live performance recorded during the original run of the production in London’s West End in 2013, and feature the original West End cast.

**Tickets will be held at Will-Call at the Theatre**

***Patrons must be in their seats 15 minutes prior to start time***
