The Orchestra of Southern Utah invites advanced high school, college and community musicians to audition to join the orchestra for their 2011-2012 concert season. Auditions are currently open until the orchestraâ€™s first rehearsal on August 25.
Musicians enjoy being a part of OSU for many reasons. â€œOSU is a great community orchestra with a wonderful director that brings out the best in the musicians,â€ commented String Bass Section Leader Carl Templin. â€œI love honing my musical skills and giving back to the community, especially the children’s festival and the Messiah performances.â€
Cello Section Leader Nina Hansen said, â€œJoining OSU provides many cultural and civic opportunities, develops and improves talent and is a service to our community. Participating in OSU helps to create new friendships around the world. It opens the hearts and minds of all those involved.â€
