WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah, Feb. 12, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Musician Sting will perform with the Utah Symphony at USANA Amphitheatre in West Valley City in a concert to benefit Zion National Park.

Proceeds from the 7:30 p.m. Aug. 31 concert will benefit the Zion National Park Forever Project, said a news release from the symphony, Cherrytree Management and Live Nation.

Sting will perform his greatest hits re-imagined for symphonic arrangement, with Rob Mathes conducting, the statement said.

Selections at the concert will include “Roxanne,” “Next To You,” “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” and “Every Breath You Take,” and songs from his solo career, including “Englishman in New York,” “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You,” and “Fields of Gold.”

The Zion National Park Forever Project is a nonprofit program to help cover some costs the National Park Service budget does not.

Project organizers, based in Springdale, recently made a donation to help keep Zion’s visitors services operating during the federal government shutdown.

Concert tickets will start at $35, and are scheduled to go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at Smith’s Tix locations, by phone at 800-888-TIXX and online at
