The Park City Council heard from the public and approved the venue change for the Park City Institute’s Big Stars Bright Nights summer concert series.

Park City Staff and Park City Institute asked council at their meeting on the 19th to not put off their decision regarding staff’s and the Institute’s request to change the Big Stars Bright Night series venue from the Quinn’s Recreation Complex to City Park.

The St. Regis Big Stars Bright Nights Concert Series had a change in venue last week, now they’re hoping to make the change permanent.

The Grace Potter concert on July 13 was held at City Park after a conflict in schedule meant that Quinn’s Junction was unavailable. Park City Institute Director Teri Orr says they’re now hoping to make City Park the venue for the remaining August and September concerts.

The Park City Institute’s Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series rolls on with a performance on Monday evening from Chris Blue.

Chris Blue won season 12 of The Voice, a television singing competition on NBC, but Blue got his start at three-years-old singing with his family in churches in the South.
