Over thirty-five years ago a pharmacist from southwest Utah,
Kortney Stirland, brought together a group of musicians
to perform in the scenic town of Kanab.
More than 300 concerts later and under the same leadership,
Symphony of the Canyons continues to share the joy of music with
the residents of and visitors to our beautiful region of the United States.
