As we approach the end of the season, I just want to take a moment and express my gratitude to everyone who has set up, taken down, driven, hauled, helped, supported, reminded their kids to practice, or helped in any way this year! You are all amazing!This last Monday's effort to get everyone to Abravanel Hall is another example of the wonderful families in this organization. If you rode the bus, drove a carpool, drove yourself, hauled instruments, etc, etc, we invite you to fill out the Volunteer Follow-up Form so we may accurately track the many hours you have donated to this organization. It also helps us immensely in our grant writing to have this record!

Eliza Corrington, first violin and percussionist, is a national finalist for a song writing competition with the National Endowment for the Arts! Her mom pointed out that since she has been learning and improving her musical skills for several years with NUYS, this helped her develop her musical talents- she wouldn't have won something like this without being a part of NUYS for so long. Take a look at the following link!
She will be in New York April 20-24, and will be back to Utah just in time for the final concert!
