Community orchestras bring a lot of value to an area. They give musicians a chance to bond over a shared love of music and perform outside of work or school. They also vastly enrich the culture of the surrounding community.
Whether you’re itching to join a group or just want to listen to beautiful music, there are several community orchestras worth checking out around Utah County. These include both adult orchestras and extracurricular youth symphonies.
These programs are available for any adult to participate. They include audition and non-audition ensembles and are spread out throughout Utah County.
American Fork Symphony
This orchestra features about 90 musicians from all over Utah County. They perform throughout American Fork and other surrounding cities and offer solo opportunities for youth and adult musicians.
