Talented, young musicians had the audience on their feet at the debut concert of the Uintah Basin Youth Chamber Orchestra. The musicians ranging in age from 10 to 20 years old, took the stage at the Vernal Middle School on Saturday night and impressed with a program lineup that included Holt’s St. Paul’s Suite and the energetic Palladio composed by Karl Jenkins. Executive Director Brad Vanfleet and Assistant Director AnnaMae Drechsel took turns on the podium conducting the young, talented musicians; each fulfilling a lifelong dream. “It went perfect. I’m still in awe,” shares Vanfleet. “The audience obviously loved it. They were on their feet before the song even ended.” The excitement following the concert has been overwhelming and positive, fueling the youth as they prepare for their next big event, a side-by-side performance with the Uintah Basin Orchestra and Chorus during their spring concert. Earlier this month, the UBOC board approved the adoption of the Uintah Basin Youth Orchestra as an organization under its umbrella. Learn more about the youth orchestra atwww.ubyco.org.
