Peace on Earth
Kurt’s Music in High Places makes a second stop in Kayenta! All seating is outdoors and General Admission. Set on our plaza against the backdrop of CFAK and the nearby red mountains of Ivins, the atmosphere of this annual concert series is second to none in Southern Utah.
Kurt Bestor loves playing in intimate settings like Kayenta. “I get to connect with the audience in ways I can’t in larger concert halls and venues”.
Throughout the concert, Kurt weaves in the stories behind each song and why and how he wrote them in his warm, humorous style. “You can’t help but feel his own journey through his music,” says Elise West, a lifelong friend/ fellow musician/ devoted fan, “and it touches everyone in a different way. It’s the reason people go to his concerts. Everyone comes to their own interpretation of what the music means for them personally.” Bestor’s unique style has earned him legions of loyal fans around the world. His sound is powerful and, he hopes, “elevating,” having the capacity to evoke joy, serenity and ecstasy. His composing and performing talents has garnered Emmy awards and Grammy nominations. He’s best known for his Christmas music, but he’s also written over forty film scores for national television and commercials. and he’s played live concerts to more than half a million people in the past 28 years. Bestor was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin, but Utah claims him as their own.
