SLCC’s Grand Theatre presents The Four King Cousins concert

The Grand Theatre at Salt Lake Community College will present the Utah premiere of Harmony is King: A Salute to the Great Songs of the 1960s & 70s, starring The Four King Cousins, singing stars of classic TV’s King Family Show and daughters of Utah’s own big band-era greats, Grammy-nominees The King Sisters. The concert will held June 6, 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at The Grand Theatre Box Office, 1575 South State Street, Salt Lake City or by calling 801-957-3322 or visiting www.the-grand.org.

The Harmony is King concert will mark the harmonizing quartet’s first area appearance since they joined over 100 members of the King Family in a rousing performance at the Utah Sesquicentennial Celebration in 1997. This concert celebrates the unforgettable songs and legendary composers of 1960’s and 1970’s, including pop hits like “God Only Knows,” “I Couldn’t Live Without Your Love,” and “The Way We Were,” all performed in the group’s signature four-part harmony. This multimedia concert experience filled with vintage film clips and rare family home movies also features a salute to The King Sisters and their record hits including “In the Mood,” “Route 66” and “Imagination.” Acclaimed musician Troy Dexter will lead the Cousins’ band and serve as musical director for the show.

“We are thrilled to bring our show to Utah,” noted King Cousin’s lead singer Tina Cole, “The King Family got its start here when we performed a benefit to build the then new Cougar stadium at BYU. That performance led to our ABC-TV series, which celebrates its 50th Anniversary this year, so it’s a homecoming of sorts for our family.” Harmony is King makes its Utah debut on the heels of several acclaimed performances in California. Following their most recent concert, The Wall Street Journal’s jazz critic Will Friedwald noted the King Cousins are “one of the best vocal harmony groups I’ve ever heard.”

The Four King Cousins were a staple on TV’s The King Family Show and their classic holiday television specials. Their most recent retrospective CD “More Today Than Yesterday” is available now. The Four King Cousins will also be featured in the PBS My Music special “Sister Acts,” airing nationwide this June and hosted by the groups’ lead singer Tina Cole, star of the second longest running sitcom in TV history My Three Sons.

College Celebrates New Student Center at Jordan Campus

The sun was out, and spirits were high as Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) celebrated the new Tim and Brenda Huval Student Center at the Jordan Campus in West Jordan.   A group of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community partners cheered as members of the Huval family and SLCC student leaders joined SLCC President Deneece G. Huftalin and 2020-21 SLCC Student Association President Emily Hernandez Alzamora in cutting the ceremonial ribbon of blue and yellow stethoscopes, officially opening the doors to the new Huval Student Center. “This is what happens when you listen to students,” Huftalin said. “Today I’m thrilled that their vision is fulfilled.” More than a decade ago, SLCC student leaders identified a need for a place at the Jordan Campus where students could gather, study and collaborate. That need became a student-funded project resulting in the new 41,000-square-foot center that provides student support services and promotes a sense of community among students, especially

COVID-19 Testing for Students at SLCC

The following email sent to all current SLCC students was updated Dec. 4, 2020.  Dear SLCC Students,   I am asking for your help. It’s no secret that Utah is in crisis due to the massive, recent surge in COVID-19 cases. This surge is creating a dire situation for our hospitals where their ability to provide emergency treatment or intensive care is becoming severely limited.    As a student at Salt Lake Community College, you have an extraordinary opportunity to help reverse this troubling trend and have a real and positive impact on the health of all Utahns. Since many of you are already coming to campus, and so many in your age group are asymptomatic, SLCC is joining other Utah colleges and universities to test all college students attending in-person classes this fall. Here’s how it will work: Students who are 18 or older and who attend at least one in-person class this semester are being offered tests, which should be done every 14 days.  Testing will take place at the Taylorsville
