It's 226 days or so until Christmas, so you better get planning with these dates in mind: December 17 & 18.  That's when Mannheim Steamroller will be rolling into Eccles Theater in Salt Lake City for their 35th Anniversary of Christmas Tour.  Both shows are at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets go on sale Friday, July 26 at 10am online at or at the box office.

April showers bring May concerts, at the Rio Grande Concert series.  It's free and open to the public every Thursday in May at The Gateway.  Here's the lineup:
