An exciting collaboration between the UVU Symphony Orchestra and Mountain View High School Symphony will take stage at Mountain View High School’s auditorium on Thursday, April 3, 2014, at 7:30 p.m.
This evening will feature local news station Fox 13’s Bob Evans, who will narrate a favorite work among young audiences, Saint Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals.”
“A Tribute to Youth” celebrates youth with music that reflects youth. It will feature winners from UVU Symphony’s annual concerto competition, as well as students from MVHS performing side-by-side some exciting music to challenge the aspiring young musicians.
“Both Mr. Bowman (band director at MVHS) and I share in a continuing effort to reach out to the community and to encourage collaborations in bringing the arts closer to other disciplines like media and literature,” said Cheung Chau, conductor of the UVU Symphony. “We are very excited about this opportunity and are looking forward to future collaborations.”
The concert will also feature Schumann’s “Spring Symphony,” inspired from the analogy that youth is the springtime of life.
