Utah Symphony in Kanab
Angels Landing at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary
5001 Angel Canyon Road Kanab, Utah 84741 Get Directions


Tickets to Utah Symphony’s “Forever Mighty® Tour” performances are no longer available online, but come on down – we’ll try our best to get you in!

If you weren’t able to get a ticket prior to the event, standby lines will be open at each venue for day-of admission (starting at 7 PM; location varies by venue). At 7:30 PM, based on attendance, we will admit additional patrons into each performance. 

All tickets subject to availability.

Surrounded by a magically unspoiled landscape of towering Navajo sandstone cliffs and vistas of sagebrush, Kanab is home to the Best Friends Animal Sanctuary—the nation’s largest sanctuary for homeless animals and right where the Utah Symphony will perform.

Concert Highlights Include:

  • A melody everyone will recognize – “Flight of the Bumble Bee.” Played as an homage to the 125th anniversary of Utah becoming a state.
  • Lively melodies based on folk tunes that would have originally been played on fiddle or fife. “Romanian Folk Dances” is a fitting piece to describe the vivid landscapes and people of Utah.
  • Listen as the virtuoso Utah Symphony performs the highly spontaneous and emotionally powerful Symphony No. 7, a work Beethoven himself considered one of his best.
