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 The Springville Arts Commission’s 2017/2018 Sunday Concert Series season will commence on August 20th at 4:30 in the Springville Museum of Art. Jennifer Bate is the featured artist and will sing a program of show tunes and contemporary musical numbers. This concert is free to the public.

From a young age, Jennifer had a beautiful voice. She once had a teacher complain to her mother that Jennifer’s incessant singing was disrupting to the class! It wasn’t until later in life that she discovered for herself that she had a real love for singing.

Although hesitant and unsure if music was her passion, she decided to pursue a music education after her graduation from Springville High School. Accepted into the vocal performance program at BYU and receiving the BYU Vocal Performance Scholarship, she has studied opera for the past three years until she recently ventured into the world of theater and pop music.

After spending this summer recording her more contemporary music and producing a CD, she will continue as a senior at BYU studying voice, and will be playing the role of Lauretta in BYU’s fall production of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi. Previous performances include singing the aria “Ach Ich Fuhls” from The Magic Flute, by Mozart, with the Utah Symphony as a part of the “Salute to Youth” program. She participated in shows such as Hello Dolly at Springville High School, where she played Miss Dolly Levi. She participated in other productions such as The Magic Flute, Carmen, a Gilbert and Sullivan Medley and many singing competitions.

The Art City Brass Quintet has been invited to perform on Sunday, September 17th. They play the classics, the jazzy toe tappers, and original compositions and arrangements written by their talented players. Their goal is to promote their genre throughout Utah and beyond if the opportunity occurs. They’re crazy about performing and will play just about anywhere.

ACB was founded in May 2014 by Shawn Shearer, trumpet, and Danielle Dinkelman, trombone. They were lucky enough to attract some of the best musicians in the state; Robert (Bob) Peterson, a fantastic trumpet player, arranger, and composer; Jeff Michaelis, who is the principal horn of the Utah Valley Symphony and Marcus Voght, tuba player and educator, who plays with the Utah Premiere Brass, The American West Symphony, as well as various Traditional Dixieland Jazz Bands. Budding young musicians should hear this polished brass quintet!
