Carnival of the Animals

From the graceful swan to the boisterous elephant, the entire family will be delighted by Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. In addition, the Youth Symphony of Southern Utah will join Lucas Darger and the Southwest Symphony for a spectacular side-by-side presentation, and our Young Artist Competition Gold Medalist Ellie Welker will perform Bruch's gorgeous Romance with the symphony.

Southern Utah Youth Orchestra

Southern Utah Youth Symphony

Youth Symphony of Southern Utah was founded in 2018 by Vista School in Ivins. Youth Symphony of Southern Utah is an auditioned group for 9th-12th grade students in the St. George area. Students rehearse weekly and perform at many venues throughout the year. Their director is Linda Ghidossi-DeLuca, a Juilliard graduate and Teacher of the Year from the American String Teachers Association for the state of Utah. Students who participate in this group have the opportunity to play with other dedicated musicians who have chosen to make music a priority in their lives. The Youth Symphony of Southern Utah provides a rigorous and rewarding opportunity for all who are chosen to participate.
