Concert series features local bands of BYU alumni, students


BYU will hold a concert featuring The National Parks, Quiet House and Emily Brown on Jan. 24 in the Wilkinson Center at 8 p.m.

The concert series features local bands that have ties to BYU. All of the bands have members that are either current BYU students or alumni.

English major and lead singer Emily Brown said, “Being a student can take a lot of work and a lot of time. Music is a great way to relieve stress.” Brown also said balancing work, school and music is challenging, but time management is key.

BYUSA Executive Director of Activities David Brantley said the purpose of the event is to provide students with a stress-relieving outlet. “This concert is an opportunity to take a break. Everyone who shows up is going to leave happy and inspired to move forward in whatever they are doing,” he said.

The concert series will showcase a unique chemistry among the performing bands. Not only do the artists share a passion for making music, but they have performed together before at different venues. “It is going to be really fun and really good. It’s going to be driven by lots of love,” Brown said.

The National Parks, Quiet House and Emily Brown have a large following among BYU students, but the event is open to the public. The cost of the concert is $5. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are available to purchase online.
