Congratulations! Thank you all for a wonderful year!

Dear Northern Utah Youth Symphony Musicians!
     I would like to take this opportunity to not only congratulate you on a great concert, but to thank you for an incredible season! What would otherwise have a difficult year, we made the best of it and made some wonderful music.
     All of our concerts this season were incredible, and Monday's concert was a spectacular ending to our season! The music was a little more challenging and everyone met that challenge and played well. The Fanfare was spine chilling. These brass and percussion players were awesome. It really wowed the audience!
     The Meistersinger was the best you had played it and all those little themes came out nicely. Natalie's violin concerto brought a lot of emotion as it was so beautifully presented. What a great artist you are Natalie! And what a great closer with the Capriccio Espagnol! Our wonderful soloists in the Capriccio really made it memorable. Everyone seemed to get into the Spanish spirit!
     How great it was to be able to perform a full season this year! A lot of great music with our great members. Our soloists Elizabeth Archuleta, Kai Bowen, and Talmage Kay, were outstanding!
     Last but not least, we need to thank our wonderful manager Julie Gardner!! Her hard work and a lot of organizing made it all possible!
     I look forward to seeing many of you return next season. To those who are graduating – Thank You! We will miss you. But just know you may play with us whenever you get the chance.

Conductor, Northern Utah Youth Symphony
