Downtown Life

Best Spot for Music in Utah

“The Gallivan Center is a green and gracious ‘living room’ for downtown. The venue hosts a series of rousing concerts, bringing together audiences of all ages. The folks at Excellence in the Community are key players in bringing prominent Utah artists to the venue year-round. This past holiday season, for instance, Gallivan hosted the likes of jazz quintet, Blue Haiku, Lark & Spur and the Utah Symphony.”
