Utah Music Festival announces new community orchestra program
This past week, the Utah Music Festival and the Park City School of Music announced the launch of a community-wide, youth and adult orchestra and choir.
The Park City/Summit County Youth Orchestra and Choir will be open to all musicians from the fifth grade through adult amateurs. There will be two divisions of ensembles featuring less and more experienced players. The program will seek to give motivated students and amateurs an additional musical outlet for their efforts.
A fee of between $100 and $200 per semester will be charged for music, venue rentals, and professional coaches and conductors. A higher level of participation will allow for lower fees. Scholarships will be available on a financial need basis.
For information and to register for the winter/spring semester, please call: 658-4943 or e-mail the orchestra and choir’s office at utahmusic
