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.

SLCC Student COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement? A. State leaders recently granted Utah System of Higher Education institutions more flexibility in decisions regarding COVID-19 vaccination requirements for Spring semester 2022. The surge in cases due to the Delta variant has put a huge strain on Utah’s health care system, and the college can play an important role in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 by requiring students to get vaccinated. Q. Why are SLCC employees not subject to the vaccination requirement? A. The college is currently waiting for a legal review and authority to consider a vaccination requirement for SLCC employees. Updates will be provided as the college receives information on this matter. Q. Why is SLCC implementing a vaccine requirement rather than a mask mandate? A. Utah law only allows state and local health departments, with approval from the relevant county legislative bodies, to issue mask mandates. With that said, SLCC encourages every

Vaccine requirement lifted for students, starting now

At more than two years since the start of the pandemic, we at SLCC are in the phase of navigating how we “learn to live” with the virus. With COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continuing to decline locally, SLCC is opting to remove its vaccination requirement for students registering for classes from this point forward. You are no longer required to be vaccinated or declare an exemption to attend SLCC.   With the immediate lifting of this requirement, we still believe it important to continue tracking vaccinations, as it will help us measure the overall safety and wellbeing of our entire community across all locations. As such, students are encouraged to update the college on their vaccination status, though it is not required.   Vaccines and boosters are still the best available tools to protect against serious illness and death from COVID-19, so we encourage everyone to keep their vaccinations up-to-date per the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control .
