FOR VIOLIN, VIOLA, CONTRABASSOON, AND HARP!
Even if you haven’t played seriously for a while, this is your chance to freshen up your skills and audition for the premier community orchestra in the Salt Lake Valley. Several of our current musicians had gone years without playing before deciding they wanted to be part of our orchestra, so don’t let that hold you back!
The West Valley Symphony of Utah is privileged to perform for audiences of hundreds and even thousands of spectators on a regular basis. We are the go-to orchestra for the Salvation Army/KUTV Angel Tree concert each year, and the Larry & Gail Miller family each December at the Vivint Arena. We are often asked to participate in other popular events such as Taylorsville Dayzzz and Days of ’47 concerts at Abravanel Hall. Through these events, we perform a large range of music ranging from Bach to film scores and other popular music.
If you live in/near the Salt Lake Valley and would like to be a part of what we do, this is your chance! Required scales and audition materials for each instrument can be downloaded below. Even if it looks tough, work on it and come prepared to do your personal best. If you have a short excerpt from a concerto/etude/performance piece you’d like to play to show us what you’ve got, we welcome that as well!
Note that rehearsals are held weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 PM, with sectionals some weeks beginning at 6.
