Founder of Symphony of the Canyons Kortney Stirland retires after 38 years

Back in 1984, Kortney Stirland was asked to put together a little symphony for a church event, no more than 20 or 25 people to accompany a production of “The Music Man”. Stirland said, “We had such a good time; we just wanted to keep it going.” And so, the Kanab Civic Orchestra was born … and many of those founding members are still going. As the orchestra grew, more and more people from outside of Kanab started volunteering, to the point that ‘Kanab Civic Orchestra’ became a bit of a misnomer; in 1999 they changed the group’s name to the one they’re known by today: The Symphony of the Canyons.
