We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

The Gift of Symphony



Everybody's hurting ITCEC (your handy acronym for "in the current economic climate"). But the struggle of arts organizations to fill seats will have a trickle-down effect on potential patrons who may want to put a couple of tickets in someone's stocking.

From Dec. 4 - 23, the Utah Symphony is putting terrific floor-level seats on sale for several 2010 performances -- just $20 a pop for tickets that might cost you twice that ordinarily. Performances for which the special offer applies include Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 (Jan. 8-9); the return of conductor Keith Lockhart (pictured, Feb. 19-20); Mozart Violin Concerto No. 4 (March 5-6); and Verdi's "Requiem" (April 9-10). Grab 'em while you can, and show those special folks on your holiday gift list how much class ya got.
