    Los Lobos

    Los Lobos

    If Los Lobos has learned one thing in nearly four decades together, it’s that playing by the rules is not for them. They tried it for a while, said no thanks, and they’ve been better for it ever since. The 20th anniversary re-release of Los Lobos’ landmark Kiko album by Shout! Factory on August 21 — bursting with bonus tracks and a live DVD in addition to the original album — serves as a potent reminder of why going rogue was the best thing this legendary American quintet ever did.

    Doobie Brothers

    The Doobie Brothers

    Presented by the Killebrew-Thompson Memorial. Net proceeds go to Leukemia and Cancer Research.

    As durable as American steel, Northern California’s four-time Grammy winning Doobie Brothers sound has become part of America’s musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on “American Idol,” and a fixture on radio formats from top 40 to classic rock. They continue to write and record new material, tour the world, boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, all while breaking new creative ground in the exploration of their musical connection with Nashville.

    Beach Boys

    The Beach Boys

    You can capsulize most pop music acts by reciting how many hits they’ve had and how many millions of albums they’ve sold. But these conventional measurements fall short when you’re assessing the impact of The Beach Boys. To be sure, this band has birthed a torrent of hit singles and sold albums by the tens of millions. But its greater significance lies in the fact that it changed the musical landscape so profoundly that every pop act since has been in its debt.

The Sun Valley Pavilion on the south western end of the soccer field at the Sun Valley Resort is inspired by its natural setting and destined to become a wonderful gathering place for performance events.

The sky and mountain are captured by the free flowing sensual roof, comprising of a seasonal luminous tensile membrane covering nearly 1500 seats and a permanent steel cable net with a copper roof structure providing cover over stage and support facilities. The surrounding landscape is sculpted into an undulating park gently elevated like a natural amphitheatre, so you are be able see Trail Creek Canyon, Dollar Mountain and Baldy while you relax and enjoy a variety of high-quality entertainment.

The facility is a technological and structural accomplishment. It demonstrates how permanent and seasonal structures can be integrated to offer the best of both worlds: use of wood for acoustic blending and a tensile membrane for luminous reflective space. The ambiance - an interior space and an outdoor room drenched in diffused sunlight. The Sun Valley Summer Symphony hosts its season at the facility along with many other events, each with an intimate relationship to the stage with unobstructed sightlines and excellent sound quality.
