Young Artists Join Suzuki Strings on March 17, 2012

The YOUNG ARTIST CHAMBER PLAYERS, a group of talented high-school string players from the Salt Lake City area, will be performing in Cedar City. They will appear in concert on Saturday, March 17, at 3:00 p.m. at St. Jude’s Episcopal Church, 70 North 200 West. Included in the concert will be “Concerto in C for Two Violins and Two Cellos” by Vivaldi, “Chanson Triste” by Liadov, and Hohvaness’ “Armenian Rhapsody”. The group will also be collaborating with the Suzuki Strings, of Cedar City, on a movement of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3. Concert admission is free and the public is welcome. The Young Artist Chamber Players (YACP) was founded by Jack Ashton in 1985. Jack is a member of the Utah Symphony, and recently retired from teaching at Olympus High School. He wanted to give excellent string players along the Wasatch Front a chance to participate in a quality chamber orchestra. In 1988 the orchestra was incorporated and a Board of Directors appointed.
