Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest.

The Utah Valley Symphony starts off the holiday season this year with a one-of-a-kind performance as they bring together motion picture and a live orchestral rendition of the classic Christmas Tale “The Snowman.” The symphony will perform Dec. 2 and 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo.

Experience the Academy Award-nominated motion picture “The Snowman” as the Utah Valley Symphony plays along and provides the soundtrack music. This movie is the tale of a boy who builds a snowman which magically comes to life. Their adventure takes flight over countryside and into the forest where they meet Father Christmas and his reindeer. The morning after the return journey, the sun comes out and the boy wakes up to find the snowman has melted.

r

The motion picture is based on a children’s picture book by English author Raymond Briggs first published in 1978 in the U.K. The book was adapted into a 26-minute animated television special in 1982 which debuted in Britain on Dec. 26 of that year.

r

The movie is told through pictures, action and music and scored by Howard Black. The silent film inherited the spirit of the wordless book except for the song “Walking in the Air.” It was later nominated for an Academy Award. The showing of this touching tale has become a winter tradition.

r

“The Utah Valley Symphony honors that tradition this year by providing our audience with a live orchestral rendition of the classic Christmas tale while still allowing them to appreciate the beautiful animation,” said Lance Jensen, UVS general manager.

r

The Utah Valley Symphony was organized in 1959 as a nonprofit organization. Its purpose was to give local musicians an opportunity to use their talents and provide the community with symphony music. It began as the Central Utah Community Orchestra and was then changed to the Utah Valley Symphony. All members of the Utah Valley Symphony are volunteers and have dedicated their lives to perfecting their skills.
