2023 SUU High School Honor Orchestra Festival

This event takes place on Friday, February 10, 2023 in conjunction with the Southern Utah University music scholarship auditions. We invite high school orchestras and ensembles with their director to join this honor orchestra event by group. Also any high school students, nominated by their directors (no audition required), can experience an outstanding opportunity to rehearse and perform, along with the festival combined orchestra, with high quality orchestral works under the direction of Dr. Xun Sun, Director of Orchestral Activities at Southern University of Utah.  Fee for participation is $20 per student. Lunch will be provided by the SUU Music Department. Follow the links below for information, registration, and sheet music. All rehearsals and the performance will be held at our beautiful Heritage Center Theater in Cedar City, Utah (105 N, 100 E).
