On Sun­day, March 19, at 4:30 p.m. in the Grand Gallery of the Springville Mu­seum of Art, the Springville Arts Com­mis­sion is spon­sor­ing a con­cert fea­tur­ing the Nebo Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra. They will be per­form­ing num­bers evoca­tive of the Bri­tish Isles. The con­cert is free to the pub­lic and all are wel­come. The mu­seum is lo­cated at 126 E. 400 South in Springville.

The Nebo Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra is a sym­phony or­ches­tra of mu­si­cal ex­cel­lence and un­usual ver­sa­til­ity with a place of cul­tural sig­nif­i­cance in our com­mu­nity. The tal­ented mu­si­cians who per­form with the or­ches­tra are united by a pas­sion for great mu­sic and con­sis­tently per­form at a pro­fes­sional level. Many of them are soloists or mu­sic teach­ers. Their ex­per­tise and tal­ent al­low the or­ches­tra to tackle dif­fi­cult reper­toire in many dif­fer­ent styles and id­ioms. By per­form­ing great mu­sic in clas­si­cal and pop­u­lar styles, the NPO pro­vides lo­cal res­i­dents with the op­por­tu­nity to hear live per­for­mances of mu­sic that has shaped the world in which we live.

The or­ches­tra was or­ga­nized in 2006 with Ben­jamin Win­kler as the con­duc­tor. The cur­rent di­rec­tor is Sher­rie Dun­ford. The Nebo Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra is a full-size sym­phony or­ches­tra. Mem­ber­ship is open to adult mu­si­cians, pri­mar­ily in south Utah County (Springville to San­taquin), by au­di­tion. For in­for­ma­tion about per­for­mances, au­di­tions and re­hearsals, call 801-798-8879 or send an email to info@nebophil.org.

The Maple­ton Chorale is sched­uled to per­form on Sun­day, April 16, at 4:30 p.m. at the art mu­seum. The Maple­ton Chorale was founded in 1994 by a small group of Maple­ton res­i­dents with a love for choral mu­sic and a de­sire to re­hearse and per­form a broader reper­toire than gen­er­ally found in a tra­di­tional church set­ting. This ded­i­cated com­mu­nity choir seeks mu­si­cal ex­cel­lence in ev­ery piece and en­joys singing a va­ri­ety of mu­sic in­clud­ing clas­si­cal, spir­i­tu­als, folk songs, sa­cred hymns and pop­u­lar tunes.

The Nebo Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra will present a free con­cert on Sun­day, March 19, at the Springville Mu­seum of Art.
