CSD Youth Symphony to Play with Pros

The Canyons Youth Symphony is gearing up for an encore performance with the American West Symphony.

The Youth Symphony of about 80 sixth- through ninth-graders are practicing an arrangement of Giaochino Rossini’s William Tell Overture, which they’ll perform with the all-volunteer, Sandy-based American West Symphony in a joint concert April 22 at 7 p.m. at Butler Middle School. 

“I feel it is a great opportunity for our students to see they can continue to express themselves through music during their whole lifetime. They become more aware of performance opportunities beyond high school and college and that will motivate them to practice more,” Canyons Art Consortium Chairwoman Sharee Jorgensen said.

The Canyons Youth Symphony is an audition-only after-school program. Its conductors are Jenni Perkins, Albion Middle; Keith Davis, Butler Middle; and Lena Wood, Midvale Middle. The American West Symphony directed by Joel Rosenberg.

“Of all the community outreach we do, the mentorship with the Canyons Youth Symphony is the one our musicians enjoy the most,” said American West Symphony Board Chairwoman Charlotte Jordan. “The proud smiling faces of the young musicians show the incredible power of sharing the gift of music.”

Lucie Chamberlain

Alta View Elementary

If a movie about super teachers were ever made, Lucie Chamberlain would be a prime candidate for a leading role. Fortunately for her kindergarten students at Alta View Elementary, she already thrives in a supporting role for them. Parents thank her for being a “super teacher.” She is also described as an “amazing colleague.” Whether students need help in the classroom or from home while sick, Lucie goes above and beyond to help them learn, overcome fears, and feel important and cared for. Lucie is the reason a number of kids went from hating school to loving it, according to parents. The way she exudes patience, sweetness, positive energy, and love for her students with special needs melts is appreciated and admired. One parent noted: “Both my kids wish she could be their teacher forever.” Another added:  “She treats every student like their learning and their feelings are her priority.” Super teacher, indeed!
