Utah Symphony All-Star Concert.

Each year when we play at Abravanel Hall, we qualify to send a few people to play in the Utah Symphony All-Star Concert where the youth play side-by-side with the Utah Symphony. This year our orchestra is so small we only qualified to send one string player (Miranda), and they originally only gave us one wind spot (Keri) as well - and an alternate spot for oboe. We submitted everyone's information, never expecting that the Utah Valley Youth oboist wouldn't be able to play. But last week we found out that the UVY oboist can't make every rehearsal, so Avery gets to play instead! 

Congratulations to this year's Utah Symphony All-Stars: Miranda S. will be playing Violin, Keri H. will be playing Trumpet, and Avery W. will be playing oboe at the Utah Symphony All-Star Concert on May 25. I encourage all who can make it to attend the concert. Click Here for the Utah Symphony Website concert information.

Gala Fundraiser Dinner ticket sales. 

Our winners for the ticket sales contest were: Gabby H, LYCO; Avery W, LYS (if you don't count our conductor)! They will both need to let me know which gift card they want.
