Lyceum Music Festival: AUG. 5 - AUG. 10, 2013
Sometimes all it takes to inspire a young person is to find that role model who has "made it" and who is willing to help you find your own path to success. The Lyceum Music Festival gives students 13 to 21 the rare opportunity to work with and perform alongside real music industry professionals. You will dig deep into orchestral masterworks with career musicians from the Utah Symphony, and Maestro Kayson Brown. By the end of the week, you will have been mentored by professional conductors, symphony players, chamber groups, and chart-topping guest artists! The whole idea is that you come away with a new understanding of what the music industry is and what role music could play in your own life.
The Piano Guys have taken the music world by storm with their "classically infused" pop arrangements. Cellist Steven Sharp Nelson and pianist Jon Schmidt are classically trained experts in making music FUN! PBS is currently airing The Piano Guys live concert at Red Butte Gardens in every television market in the United States. They graciously included our very own Lyceum students playing a mash-up of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, with One Republic's Secrets in their big television debut. Even One Republic tweeted out that they loved the mash-up!
This is not your factory-style music festival with hundreds of students ranging from intermediate to advanced. LMF only accepts 75 advanced students ages 13 to 21. We rehearse, perform, and play together for a solid week. The music includes orchestral masterworks like Aaron Copland's Appalachian Spring , and Gustav Holst's Jupiter from The Planets. We break up the music with fun activities including a pizza & swimming party, bonfire/skit night, organized volleyball and ultimate frisbee, tickets to a Utah Symphony concert, as well as private performances and Q & A time with our sought-after guest artists. See the 2013 Schedule for the full details.
