Hello Everyone! We are excited that you will be joining us in Park City! Our session theme will be music appreciation with a focus on the 80s. Why? Why not! It was pretty rad.


Below are a few suggestions for you to make the most of this session:


  • Bring your iOS and/or Android device. Our focus is on the Canvas Mobile apps which support these two platforms. Sorry Windows Mobile and Blackberry users!
  • Download the following apps on your device(s)
    • Required - We will be interacting with these.
    • Optional - Will only be discussed.
  • You will be getting involved. Please save to your device's camera roll/gallery a photo of an 80s musician on stage, in action. If you can't find a photo, save one from our library:
  • We also plan to have a discussion about your favorite 80s musician, so come prepared to share yours and why!
