In a world that has forgotten their manners it’s wonderful to have some old fashioned fun acting like ladies and gentlemen. *About the Instructors: Kimberli and her husband, Tom, have been dancing since childhood and have been involved with vintage dancing in Georgia since 1995. They danced with the Stately Oaks Vintage Dancers and the Atlanta Baroque Dancers for many years performing 18th and 19th century dances throughout the Atlanta area. When they relocated to Utah in 2006 and couldn't find a vintage dance group they felt they needed to share the charm and appeal of the antique dancing with Utah and so created Old Glory Vintage Dancers in 2007. They have been very well received at many functions along the Wasatch front teaching and performing the 1700's,1800's & early 1900's dances at private and public functions dressed in their historical attire. They also offer monthly Vintage Dance Classes and host a number of their own galas throughout the year. Please visit them on Facebook or OldGloryVintageDancers.com for more information.

    7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - Viridian A, B, C & Amphitheater: Monika Jalili: Persian Songs of Love and Hope Singer, Monika Jalili, evokes a romantic, and at times, haunting sequence of emotions as she presents acoustic Iranian songs. She has dedicated considerable time and effort to preserving and paying tribute to the the work of Iranian composers whose careers were cut short by the Iranian revolution. The talented New York-born vocalist, originally trained in musical theater, shares her enchanting voice and love of Iranian poetry in a simple yet sincere presentation, which features songs in Persian, Azeri, English, and French. Jalili’s music incorporates traditional folk songs from several different regions in Iran, and has been described as a mixing of regional, microtonal Iranian music; Mediterranean sounds; and French romanticism. Many of her songs come from the period of great artistic exploration before the fall of the Shah. The library's Viridian Event Center and Excellence in the Community present the 'Excellence in the Community Concerts', free performances each month that feature local, high quality musicians of various styles and genres.
