ALISO VIEJO, Calif. — August 17, 2017— Inc. magazine today ranked Nelson Brothers No. 129 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

Nelson Brothers which owns three student housing properties at Utah Valley University — University Gardens, University Gateway and university Towers — also ranked No. 4 within the real estate category, marking a three-year sales growth of 3,111 percent for a total of $25.5 million in revenue.

“Being ranked among some of the finest companies in today’s economy is an incredible honor,” said Patrick Nelson, CEO of Nelson Brothers. “To even be considered for the Inc. 5000, a company must show minimum growth of 10-fold over the past three years. With 3,111 percent, we’ve worked extremely hard to push Nelson Brothers to this level of success.”

The 2017 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands now) is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year average growth of 481 percent. Complete results of the Inc. 5000 can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 is the most persuasive evidence I know that the American Dream is still alive,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “The founders and CEOs of the Inc. 5000 tell us they think determination, risk taking, and vision were the keys to their success, and I believe them.”

Since its inception in 2007, Nelson Brothers has acquired and managed over $550 million in assets through the acquisition of 35 student housing properties and three assisted living properties across 14 states. Nelson Brothers focuses on targeted growth opportunities and value-added investments for its clients through capital improvements, cost efficiency and revenue maximization.

Alex Boyé to Give Free Musical Fireside at SCERA Shell Sunday, Aug. 27

(Orem, Utah) — If you work for MacDonald’s, it’s a sure thing that you’ll get a paycheck and an opportunity to eat a lot of burgers and fries. For 16-year-old Alex Boyé, however, working at the fast food restaurant in London was life-changing. His manager introduced him to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and he was soon baptized.

The multi-talented singer, dancer, and actor first performed in public as an LDS Church missionary in Bristol, England, and returned home to pursue an entertainment career.

Boyé will share insights and experiences – and of course his African-infused music – on Sunday, Aug. 27 at 7:00 pm at a free community fireside under the stars at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre, 699 South State St., Orem, in the center of SCERA Park. The gates will open at 6:00pm. He’s calling the fireside “The Power of Big Thinking.” and it is designed to both entertain and inspire.

No tickets or reservations are required. Bring a blanket or a low-style lawn chair. SCERA does have a limited supply of chairs you may use for free, but please bring a seating backup as they will go quickly.

The British-American singer with Nigerian roots has spent more than 20 years sharing his talents to appreciative audiences.

After his mission Boyé became a back-up dancer for many artists including George Michael. In 1995, he found success as the lead singer of Awesome, a European boy band, but despite charting top hits across Europe, Boyé believed it was leading to a lifestyle he couldn’t support. He quit the band and moved to Salt Lake City in 2000 to follow the Christian music market.

He released the album “Loves Goes On” in 2001, and followed it with a foray into acting. When another performer left the Rodgers Memorial Theatre’s production of “Civil War” three weeks prior to opening, Boyé–with no acting credits–was recruited, and later performed in the Lightstone production of “David and Goliath.” Other film and stage opportunities followed.

Boyé received help reaching his goal for a broader LDS audience when he met Craig Jessop, who was then conducting for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Jessop encouraged Boyé to audition, and he joined the choir in 2006 as one of three African-American choir members.

He also continued pursuing a solo career. LDS film work, recording contracts, videos and other successes followed. His video, an Africanized tribal version of “Let It Go” from the Disney movie “Frozen,” went viral, and Boyé’s YouTube views exceeded 100 million. He also released an Africanized version of “Circle of Life” where the proceeds went to a mission in Kenya, and in 2015, Boyé received the Governor’s Mansion Artist Award. He received positive national exposure and high praise from the judges after making it through several rounds on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

The fireside is made possible by Kelly and Teri Sundberg of Sundberg-Olpin Funeral Home.

12th annual Dancing Under the Stars brings ballroom, jazz and hip hop to SCERA Shell August 25-26

During a half-hour break from the Capezio Summit ACE Awards dance convention in Long Beach this week, producer Kim Delgrosso described how excited she is with the talented group of artists she has assembled for the 12thannual Dancing Under the Stars at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre.

“This year we’re putting together a show that should be high on popularity as it brings ballroom, hip hop, and jazz back to the forefront,” she says. “This high-energy concert is designed to appeal to both casual dance observers and seasoned dance audiences.”

Dancing Under the Stars will feature professional and talented area dancers Friday and Saturday, Aug. 25 and 26 at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre, 699 S. State Street, in the center of SCERA Park in Orem. A pre-show at 7:15 p.m. will feature teams from area dance studios, and the concert at 8 p.m. will be the headline event that will showcase special guest dancers and singers.

General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children age 3-11 and seniors age 65 and older.  Reserved areas with a free chair are available for an additional cost.  They are available at www.scera.org, by calling 801-225-ARTS, at the SCERA (745 S. State St., Orem) or at the gate one hour prior to the performance.

Headline performers will include LA-based dance phenoms The Connection, the Debra Bonner Unity Gospel Choir, vocalist and sign language performer William Martinez as well as premier ballroom, jazz and hip hop teams from Delgrosso’s Center Stage Performing Arts Studios in Orem.

“The Connection is a group of seven best friends with amazing dance talents,” Delgrosso explains. “Several of them have performed and been choreographers on TV dance reality shows ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and ‘So You Think You Can Dance.’ You can expect some amazing ballroom, hip hop, salsa and some partnering power tricks. I would not be surprised if they have much of the crowd standing and cheering.”

The Bonner choir is the flagship of all its Unity Gospel Choirs and spreads the message that we are all God’s children, Delgrosso says. Its overarching message is that men are that they might have joy—something to definitely sing about. They will perform Friday only.

They are known by regional audiences because they have performed at the Utah Valley Event Center, were at the grand opening of the Eccles Theatre, performed with Alex Boyé at America’s Freedom Festival, opened for 10-time Grammy winners Take 6 and, among others, were featured at the Martin Luther King Day of Service at BYU.

Coming to perform from Los Angeles, William Martinez is a strong vocalist whose family is deaf. With his performance of “SIGNing the Song,” he combines American sign language with song to share the “inspirational story of growing up with in a deaf household, and discovering music.” He has had multiple performances opportunities, including touring with “Thank You for the Music: A Modern Tribute to ABBA, and performing as the lead male singer on Silversea Cruises where he performed opera, Broadway, pop, jazz and other musical styles. An Equity actor, he also has done extensive musical theater, especially in California.

“I saw him perform at a cabaret, and he gave a thrilling performance from beginning to the end,” Delgrosso says. “I sat there shocked at some of the things I was seeing. For me it was a (hip hop violinist) Lindsay Sterling moment. I knew I wanted to have him on one of my shows.”

She is also giving local dancers and groups the opportunity to show off their talents during a pre-show, including the ballroom dance team from Utah Valley University.

As a national ambassador of dance, Delgrosso travels the country to discover the current choreographers and dancers dominating the dance world. She often serves as a judge, and her own studio, Center Stage in Orem, edged out 176 other studios to be recognized as the National Studio of the Year at the Dance Awards in New York City.

The studio has produced many of today’s top professional dancers who can now be seen on televised dance shows, American Idol, in Disney shows, movies, on Broadway and in Las Vegas at Cirque de Soleil, Le Reve and the Donny and Marie show. Most recently 17 of her dancers were selected to compete on Jennifer Lopez’s “World of Dance.”

Rock Goes Classical with Jenny Oaks Baker, Kurt Bestor and Utah Valley Symphony Aug. 21 at SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre

jenny_oaks_baker

(Orem, Utah) — Take Grammy Award-nominated violinist Jenny Oaks Baker, and you already have the makings of a first-class concert. Then add a collaboration with Emmy Award-winner Kurt Bestor and give him the baton to conduct rock music with the Utah Valley Symphony.

The result is Rock! Classical, an epic celebration of rock and roll’s greatest melodies executed with an electrifying classical twist on Monday, August 21 @ 8:00pm at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre in Orem, 699 South State (in the middle of SCERA Park).

General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children age 3-11 and seniors age 65 and older. Reserved areas with a free lawn chair may be available for an additional cost. They are available at www.scera.org, by calling (801) 225-ARTS, in person at SCERA Center for the Arts (745 South State, Orem), open 10-6 weekdays, or at the gate 90 minutes prior to performance.

Baker and Bestor have selected ageless rock classics and given them the classical music treatment.

“The music is timeless,” says Baker, “with melodies that are great for families. These melodies, especially in an instrumental version, are just fun with music that is stirring, emotional and fabulous. I did a rock music album with Kurt Bestor, who did all the arrangements.”

Among the selections will be Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” and “Kashmire,” “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns “N Roses, “Fields of Gold” by Sting,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water” by Simon and Garfunkel, and “Pinball Wizard” by The Who.

“We are also performing “Everybody Hurts” by R. E.M., which I love and is one of my favorites,” Baker adds. “This is music that will be around forever.”

Baker and Bestor have collaborated for more than 20 years, and he has done arrangements on 13 of her albums.

“We are great friends and work really well together,” she says. “He arranged my very first album, and I have been working with him since high school when I played in recording orchestras in Utah. I played for some of his first Christmas shows, and I find him to be an amazing composer, arranger, pianist and conductor. When you work with Kurt, you work with the best. He is a brilliant artist.”

Although she has won many music awards, performed nationally with several symphonies and orchestras, and spent seven years as first violinist in the National Symphony Orchestra, Baker is now happy to call Utah home.

“I am really busy performing, and living in Utah really works for me,” she says. “Most of my concerts are in the West, and I am able to drive to them and put my four children in the program. They have become good musicians, and this is a successful way I have combined motherhood with a music career.”

Her son Matthew will perform with her in the SCERA concert as they present a new arrangement of “The Sound of Music,” which will also be featured as a video within the next couple of months.

Backed by the full sound of the Utah Valley Symphony, screaming electric guitars become power from violins and French horns; the drum kit and bass are replaced with pulsating strings; and sizzling brass ramps up the energy.

“We love having Jenny Oaks Baker and Kurt Bestor on our stage,” says Adam J.  Robertson, SCERA’s President & CEO. “When you have their combined artistry and Kurt’s arrangements, we get an absolutely stellar night of music.”

“I love to perform at SCERA,” Baker adds. “It really does feel like the home town audience, and the crowd is invariably warm and enthusiastic.”

Utah County Approves County Resource Management Plan

UTAH COUNTY PRESS RELEASE

August 7, 2017

Public Lands

PROVO –The Utah County Commission approved the Utah County Resource Management Plan (RMP) in commission meeting on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.  The approval of the plan caps a year-long effort to solicit input from citizens and other interested parties in how Utah County
will communicate local knowledge, management objectives, and policies related to natural resources on federal public lands.

 

The adoption of the Resource Management Plan for the county will ensure that Utah County will have a seat at the table when dealing with Federal Land issues.  According to Utah County Commission Chairman, Bill Lee, “this plan gives the County an opportunity to sit at the table with our Federal partners and discuss the policies and management that we would like to see happen.”

 

The State of Utah required all counties in the state to update their county general plans and to develop a Resource Management Plan (RMP) for the public lands and natural resources within their borders.  The goal was for counties to have specific planning objectives that allowed local government to have a strong voice in resource planning processes for public lands such as those managed by federal and state agencies. In Utah County, the percentage of public lands within the county is 58 percent.

 

Lee praised and expressed appreciation to those who had been involved in the process, “This process has been a collaborative effort by so many in our County, and we now have a Resource Management Plan for public lands that will benefit us as we move forward. Many thanks to all involved in a plan that will be a working document for many years to come.”

 

A general plan is a legally-required document that guides current and long-term growth. Utah County’s General Plan can be viewed at www.utahcounty.gov and the final copy of the Resource Management Plan at http://www.utahcountyplan.org.
