Resolve to try something different this year with several community class options from Southern Utah University. Two upcoming classes, a new Community Band and Firewise Landscaping, give southern Utah residents fun, new options to learn something new.

How long has it been since you picked up that trumpet, flute or saxophone? Now is your time to shine with a community band for everybody.

The Cedar City Community Band is a non-auditioned concert band for individuals from So. Utah and surrounding areas. Its aim is to provide opportunities for those wishing to develop their instrumental performance skills by rehearsing and performing fun, exciting and challenging music. All high school-aged and older individuals with prior concert band performance experience are welcome.

Instructor Adam Lambert is currently the Director of Bands and Brass Studies at SUU. Lambert is also the conductor of the American Fork Symphony and the assistant conductor of the Orchestra of Southern Utah. After graduating with a degree in music education from BYU, Lambert earned his doctorate degree in trumpet performance from the University of North Texas.

Or, for homeowners, is your home prepared for a wildfire? Did you know that embers from a wildfire can travel over a mile and still catch fire?

In Firewise Landscaping, participants will learn about the science of wildfires and how to prepare their home, landscape, and community for wildfire season. SUU’s Dr. Jacqualine Grant will discuss how vegetation, construction, and having a safety plan can help make a home safer during a wildfire event. The class will be followed with a discussion about what it means to be a fire-adapted community that is prepared to coexist with Utah’s naturally occurring wildland fires. Interested class participants should bring photos of plants or areas of concern for evaluation by Grant.

For more information on these classes, or any of the 45 new classes for spring 2019, visit, call (435) 865-8259, or stop by the SUU Office of Community and Academic Enrichment at 136 W. University Blvd, Suite 003, Cedar City.
