The Mission of the
Utah Philharmonic Orchestra
We're a community orchestra dedicated to bringing great music to Utah and Salt Lake counties. From classical masterworks to movie music, we want to provide a positive environment for musicians to play together and audiences to connect.
Through patriotic and civic celebrations, cultural arts festivals, and side-by-side concerts, the orchestra gives performances in four to six municipalities each season.
Our Strings and Spurs concert includes a morning workshop for all string and picking instruments! Visit the event page for more info.
The crown jewel of the Utah Philharmonic Orchestra is the annual concerto competition. This is the only state-wide competition open to all ages and all instruments. The competition is held in February and the winners from each age category perform as soloists at the final season concert.
Registration for the 2020 Concerto Competition is now closed. We thank all that registered and invite everyone to the winner's showcase on April 11. To get early access to the 2021 competition, please subscribe to our mailing list using the form at the bottom of this page.
