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 February 16th and 17th.

Both the Friday and Saturday rehearsals are at their regular times and location this week, 4:00-6:30 Friday and 9:00-11:30 Saturday in room 272 of Gardner Hall. Also, please remember to send an email if you can't attend rehearsal. Attendance was a bit sparse last week and I didn't hear from most of those who missed. The UYJunior Symphony will be at the regular time and location, 9:00 to 10:25 at the West Institute. The winter concert will be immediately following rehearsal. The Young Composers Workshops will continue next weekend, Feb. 24th.
