The Young Artist Chamber Players (YACP) was founded by Jack Ashton in 1985. Since then, excellent string players along the Wasatch Front have enjoyed participating in this quality chamber orchestra. In 1988 the orchestra was incorporated and a Board of Directors appointed.
Through the years, the YACP has performed as part of the Governor’s concert series, in the Lobbyfest at the Utah Symphony, side-by-side with the Utah Symphony and at benefit performances. YACP takes a yearly performance tour through the state of Utah, and participates in an international tour when possible.
The Young Artist Chamber Players is supported by grants from the Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts and Parks.
