Local teens beautify the city one sign at a time

Historic home signs were distributed around Kanab in the 1990s by volunteers from the Kanab Museum and Heritage House, along with a self-guided walking tour and accompanying brochure. In the years since they’ve weathered and faded a bit, with some having fallen, as well. This is where the enthusiastic teens from Kanab LDS 4th and 2nd wards join the story.

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.
