(Poster design by Rollan Fell)

The Orchestra of Southern Utah invites you to join us for our dynamic 2016-2017 season, Musical Legacy. Despite being a small town, Cedar City has become a pocket where the arts flourish. OSU is proud to claim over 200 talented musicians who bring to life the music each season. We are grateful for our patrons and donors who have made it possible for OSU to bring Cedar City live performances. Together, with the talent of our musicians and love of music from our patrons we celebrate our Musical Legacy.

On October 13, the concert series titled Musical Legacy.  kicks off with American Legacy, conducted by Carylee Zwang. American Legacy celebrates our country with performances with Cedar High School’s Advanced Orchestra and Southern Utah University’s Jazz Band as well as OSU. Our principal oboist, Brad Gregory performs the famous Gabriel’s Oboe. The finale joins orchestras for a rousing Hoe Down from Aaron Copland’s Rodeo.

Natural Legacy, conducted by Adam Lambert on November 10, will celebrate the beauty of the outdoors including Vivaldi’s Autumn from the Four Seasons featuring our newly appointed concert mistress Heather Wilhelm, Leo Delibes’ Flower Duet, and Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony.

December 11 and 12 will mark the 76th Cedar City performance of Handel’s Messiah for a Sacred Legacy.  Thanks to sponsorship from State Bank of Southern Utah and the Leavitt Group this traditional concert is a gift to the community.

After ringing in the New Year, the orchestra returns with the annual Children’s Jubilee matinee. Create Your Own Legacy is set for February 11 and captivates young minds with music, art, and science activities. 

On February 23, Xun Sun will conduct Creative Legacy with highlights including a performance of Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini featuring Christian Bohnenstengel as the piano soloist. Our area’s national parks are celebrated in an OSU commissioned piece with the world premiere of Valley of Enchantment by American composer Mark Dal Porto. 

The season concludes on April 6 with Youthful Legacy, the Roy L. Halversen Young Artist Concert. Conducted by Adam Lambert and Carylee Zwang, the concert will showcase the exceptional talent of young soloists and end with a lively rendition of Rossini’s Barber of Seville Overture.

Our dynamic directing team and the OSU board thank the Cedar City RAP tax, George S.and Dolores Dore Eccles Foundation, and Dixie and Anne Leavitt for the generous support and sponsorship up the OSU Season.
