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. 

r Silver Winds, a flute ensemble, will perform at 4:30 p.m. in the Springville Museum of Art on Sunday, Nov. 20. The concert is free to the public and sponsored by the Springville Arts Commission.

The ensemble will be performing selections by J. S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Franz Schubert, C.M. von Weber, George Phillip Telemann and Jacob Datshkovsky.

Silver Winds was formed in 1989 by a group of women who had the desire to stay active with their musical talents. They practice together at least every other week, which is a respite from their busy lives. The group is constantly evolving, but the focus is always the same: to use and share their talents.

Besides the C flute that most people are familiar with, the piccolo, the alto flute and the bass flute add to the group’s full sound and will be used at this concert.

Currently the group consists of nine members: Sarah Allen, Adena Campbell, Penny Curtis, Marie Egbert, Lynelle Haas, Amber Jones, Donna Neibur, Colette Smith and Maudie Smith.

Sarah Allen lives in Lindon. She has been playing the flute since fifth grade and is currently the principal flutist for the Pleasant Grove Orchestra.

Donna Neibur is from Pleasant Grove. She received her fine arts/music degree from Southern Utah University. She began the flute at age 10 and has played on and off throughout her life.

Colette Smith of Orem started playing the flute when she was 8 years old and studied flute at BYU. She joined the Silver Winds a month after they were established.
