I had the pleasure of seeing Wynonna perform this past Tuesday evening here at Deer Valley. As of now, it may have been the highlight of my summer. It was not the longest concert I have ever attended but between her vocals and personality it may be one of the best. She showcased her enormous voice that you expected but once she was done with a song she continued to engage the audience with her great personality. She called people out for their dancing, signed old tour shirts and even brought a few kids up on stage for a photo op. I am pretty sure she had not only herself but most the audience crying and laughing through out the evening.
Before the performance even began I decided that my guests and I needed to be treated to the Deer Valley Gourmet Picnic Basket. I have not had one for a few years and am I ever so glad we decided to order them. We ordered two baskets a salmon and a beef and I am not sure which one I liked better. They were both delicious! The antipasto with the Creminelli truffled salami, steamed artichokes, olives, double cream brie and fresh baked French bread were enough to do you in. Then, if you can, finish with lemon pound cake and raspberry truffle tartlets. The whole thing was amazing and the best part was that I did not have to do anything but enjoy it!
I am now counting the days to my next concert which is the Utah Symphony’s performance to the 1812 Overture! I think I am going to have to order another basket!
