There is sunshine in your soul today and I know why: it’s the closing show of the Rooftop Concert Series this Friday, September 2nd. If you’ve been a Rooftop fan for the last seven years you know that it has been a tradition to close the series with The Lower Lights, A Hymn Revival. The Lower Lights are a hugely popular band around here—covering a wide range of genres—from gospel to Americana, singing old hymns as well as new.
Joining The Lower Lights onstage is the SLC Mass Choir, a diverse, multi-generational group with a shared passion for singing gospel. This is the first time a choir has ever performed on the Rooftop stage. It’s going to be remarkable… Can I get an amen?
Show starts at 7:30pm. All ages are welcome. It’s FREE. A seating area is provided for those who would prefer to sit and enjoy the show. As always, we recommend everyone coming down early and eating at one of our many great restaurants downtown.
After the show, Big Door (78 W Center) will be screening O Brother, Where Are Thou? Another FREE event! Reserve tickets here.
Thanks to the producers, directors and fellow sponsors of the Rooftop Concert Series for another successful year! God be with you ‘til we meet again!
