Presented in 2018

In 2018, Excellence presented 120 free concerts in Salt Lake City, West Jordan, Provo, Holladay, Ogden, Gunnison, Helper, Fillmore, Price, Grantsville, Brigham City, Duchesne, and Ogden.

All  Concerts

are Free

Our mission is to support every community and individual regardless of their economic circumstances. We believe that high-quality music should be available to everyone that wishes to listen, for this reason since 2012 all our events have been free.

Excellence’s History

Excellence in the Community grew out of Jeff Whiteley’s experiences as a street musician in Paris. Founded in 2005, Excellence in the Community is 501 C3 nonprofit organization based on the premise that Utah’s best musicians and dancers represent a powerful resource for bringing people together and enhancing communities. We work to create more and better performance opportunities for Utah artists. Since our first event in 2005, we have presented over 640 concerts. Since moving to the Gallivan Center in December 2011, all of our concerts have been offered free to the public.

With a focus on quality musicianship and a great diversity of musical styles, our concerts appeal to a broad range of age groups. We are pleased to see many families with young children in our audiences.
