Culture in the Desert: DSU Tanner Amphitheater


Southern Utah is indisputably the home to some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere. Take that scenery, in particular Zion National Park, and make it a back drop to a musical or theatrical performance and you are pretty much close to heaven. Hidden just off the main road of Springdale, Utah in the shadows of the majestic Zion National Park cliffs, you can find Dixie State University’s Tanner Amphitheater.

One of my favorite performances there was watching and listening to the Utah State Symphony Orchestra. There is never a dull moment as the music washes over you and the setting sun illuminates the towering red cliffs. The forty minute drive from St. George is worth it just to experience the location of this unique venue.

The events vary, so check out the schedule early and see what agrees with your taste, but remember that the O. C. Tanner Amphitheater offers more than just the concert. It offers yet another reason to fall in love with Dixie’s red rock and yes, Dixie’s red sand.

Let us help you find your perfect place live in what we feel is a perfect place to live. Fall in love with Southern Utah.
