Ellie has been participating with UYOES since seventh grade. She began in the junior orchestra with Dan Rich, which she loved. She then advanced to the Philharmonic. She has loved having Barbara Scowcroft as her conductor.
For their program this year they performed:
RUSSIAN EASTER FESTIVAL OVERTURE, Op.36 by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
PEER GYNT SUITE No.1, Op.46 by Edvard Grieg
- Morning Mood (Morgenstemning)
- The Death of Åse (Åses død)
- Aitra’s Dance (Anitras dans)
- In the Hall of the Mountain King (I Dovregubbens hall)
It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! As audience members, we LOVED every minute of it!
This was Ellie’s last performance with Utah Youth. She has decided not to continue for her senior year. We are so proud of how hard she has worked. She has never complained about spending her Friday afternoons in rehearsal. It is amazing to watch her fingers move up and down so quickly on her finger board. She is now so skilled and carrying her bass, with a stool and opening doors all on her own. We are so proud of her-and grateful to have heard her beautiful music.
