Utah Youth Philharmonic (UYPhil)

The Utah Youth Philharmonic was formed in 2008. During auditions for UYSO that year, it became clear that a second orchestra was needed due to the number of youth musicians who had the desire to participate in UYSO. Music Director and Conductor Barbara Scowcroft leads the UYPhil in rehearsing and performing unedited classical literature in Utah's premiere concert halls. Sectional coachings are conducted by some of our area's finest musicians, including musicians from the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, U of U School of Music, UVU Department of Music, and other top-tier music instructors in our area.
