Jennifer Napier-Pearce February 6, 2013.

The Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah has tapped veteran journalist Jennifer Napier-Pearce to become its new associate director of communications.

Napier-Pearce’s broad experience in print, radio and online media will strengthen the Hinckley’s mission of promoting political involvement, civil discourse and valued political analysis, said Hinckley Institute director Jason Perry.

“Jennifer’s fresh perspective, energy and respected reputation will amplify the Hinckley Institute story in new ways,” Perry said. “I’m delighted to have her on board as we build on the institute’s rock-solid history as a leader in education, politics and community dialogue.”


RED BUTTE GARDEN 2016 OUTDOOR CONCERT SERIES


amphitheatre
Concert series tickets went on sale April 25 and are still available for 12-15 of the 30 acts that will perform in the Red Butte Garden Amphitheater this summer.

From its beginning in the 1980s as a series of five or six “alfresco summer concerts” in the garden on Sunday evenings, to the current 3,000-capacity Red Butte Garden Amphitheater with top-name acts and a schedule chock-full of consistently sold-out shows, Red Butte Garden is the place to experience some of the best summer concerts in Utah.

You get it all — panoramic alpine-glow views of the Wasatch Front and the Salt Lake Valley sunset, a botanical garden, your blanket and picnic spread out on the Amphitheater lawn in the foothills and then, of course, there are the amazing artists on stage.

Visit redbuttegarden.org/concerts to purchase tickets.
