COVID-19 UPDATE: Please check with individual organizations and venues for specific requirements regarding health precautions.
The Utah Philharmonic Orchestra 2021 concerto competition is on! Register today to compete against dozens of other musicians for the chance to have your musical talents featured by the UPO.
Registration deadline: January 15, 2021, 11:59 p.m.
Competition date: February 6, 2021 8 a.m.- 4 p.m.
Competition location: American Preparatory Academy West Valley II Campus
3636 W 3100 S
West Valley City, UT 84120
Auditions will be held in person for a panel of judges. Public health department guidelines will be observed including social distancing, sanitization of surfaces, and wearing of masks. Brass and wind players MUST audition with appropriate protective equipment including bell covers and masks.
While past competition winners have performed in concert with the UPO, uncertainty related to the ongoing pandemic makes planning for such an event this spring difficult. However, our board has identified several ways to feature the winning musicians based on health department guidelines at the time. This may include a live performance with a full- or part-sized orchestra, a recorded performance with a chamber group of UPO musicians, or a recorded performance with piano accompaniment. No matter the situation, each winner will be featured on the UPO website and social media pages and can claim the achievement on his or her musical resume.
We thank you for your interest and hope to hear from you in February. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
