Utah Youth Orchestras
& Ensembles (UYOE)

Since 1986, Music Director and Conductor Barbara Scowcroft's vision has been to educate and inspire young musicians through exceptional ensemble training and performance opportunities in classical music.

As Utah's first youth symphony, founded in 1957, Utah Youth Orchestras and Ensembles have nurtured thousands of talented musicians ages 12-21 with coaching and development by the area's finest professional conductors and musicians.


2017-2018 Season

The 2017-2018 season will continue with rehearsals starting on February 9th and 10th

For our spring concert on May 19th, in Abravanel Hall, the UYPhil will perform Dvorak's 6th Symphony and the UYSO will perform Dvorak's 7th Symphony. We are also planning a run-out to Helper Utah, on April 14th, with the same program.

Schedule for the week of April 13th and 14th.

The rehearsals for both the UYPhil and the UYSO will be Friday, April 13th, in room 272 of Gardner Hall. The UYPhil will rehearse from 4:00 to 5:25 and the UYSO will rehearse from 5:30 to 7:00. The following morning, April 14th, the buses will depart for Helper from Gardner Hall Saturday at noon. Please plan to arrive by at least 11:45. If you are planning on catching the bus at the Walmart in Orem, please send me an email so we know we haven't left you behind. You can download a copy of the run-out itinerary HERE. The Junior Symphony will rehearse at the regular time, 9:00 to 10:30, but will meet at the LDS Church across from Gardner Hall, 160 South University Street. Also, just a reminder that there will be no rehearsal for all three orchestras next week, April 20th and 21st.
