Sterling Poulson, music director and conductor of the Days of ’47 KUTV Pops concert since 1997, invites you to join the Choral Arts Society of Utah and the Utah National Guard 23rd Army Band, for two great nights of fabulous music. A special feature at this year’s Pops Concert will be a performance from Guest Jazz Vocalist and performer Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin.  We also welcome the Princeton Girlchoir, who will perform a wide array of musical genres. In addition, the choir and band will perform well-known Patriotic and Broadway favorites, including a salute to our men and women in uniform.

The 23rd Army Band has played for Presidents, Senators, Congressmen and Heads of State.  Each year the Band performs for thousands of people across the State of Utah and the United States, giving clinics and concerts for schools, performing at civic functions, marching in parades, and providing music for military dances, changes of command, and pass-in-reviews.  The Rock Band, Article 15 will take you back to whatever generation you are from and consists of 2 guitar players, a bass guitar player, keyboard player, percussionist and vocalists.

Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin is a writer, producer, and performer in several sold out Jazz concerts including… I Sing What I Want a tribute to Jazz Divas, I’m Feeling Good, a tribute to Etta and Nina, and To Billie and Ella with Love …A Love Letter.  Dee-Dee is also an actress and was last seen sharing the stage with her equally talented daughter in the University of Utah production of Eclipsed, which became the first play with an all-black and female creative cast and team to premiere on Broadway.   Dee-Dee’s biography includes stage credits, Best of Utah Arts awards, Best Local Production Awards and many theater honors.  Her followers also have enjoyed her performances at the Salt Lake Acting Company, CenterPoint Theater, parts of the Sundance Lab Workshops, just to name a few.  Dee-Dee also has directing credits, which include A Sea Inside of Me, and the life of Jason Smith.  She also enjoys coaching elementary school children.   You can follow Dee-Dee at her next event, The Women’s Red Rock Music Festival, August 12, 2017!

Princeton Girlchoir, currently on a summer tour across the Western United States, under the direction of conductor, Lynnel Joy Jenkins, will be featured at the concert.  They are known for their extraordinary performances at home and throughout the world, while educating the musician, building confidence, and fostering a life-long love of singing together. They will perform inspiring Broadway and Patriotic music.  Since the choir was founded in 1989, they have grown into the area’s premier training and performance choir for girls, with over 250 choristers.

Performing now for over 30 years, The Choral Arts Society of Utah 100-voice mixed choir is based in Salt Lake City. Many of their performances are free, including their annual Armed Forces Day Concert, and Days of ’47 Pops Concert, while others are benefit concerts, including the Holiday Pops Concert, benefitting the Salvation Army Angel Tree.
