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 On April 15, at 4:30 p.m., the Springville Arts Commission will present Aspen Winds in the Grand Gallery of the Springville Museum of Art. This concert is free to the public. Aspen Winds has been enthralling audiences of all ages with their creative and innovative programming since 2011. By specializing in adventurous, yet accessible, repertoire, along with beloved favorites, Aspen Winds provides a refreshing new way to love chamber music. In past seasons, unconventional elements have included storytelling, costumes, and/or including guest artists, to create a unique musical experience.

As parents and educators, the members of Aspen Winds are passionate about entertaining and educating children through Musical Outreach programs, especially in underserved areas. We have been working in conjunction with the NOVA Chamber Music Concert Series for the past three years, specifically performing for junior high audiences. For younger audiences, we create a fun and engaging experience in which they are introduced to the joys of making music. One of the ways Aspen Winds does this is to include works that meld favorite stories or well-known fairytales to music. Some of these works include Ferdinand the Bull, The Ugly Duckling, The Steadfast Tin Soldier, and The Fool and his Flying Ship (a Russian fairytale). And, of course, Peter and the Wolf!

Aspen Winds also encourages and embraces collaboration; not only through commissioning new chamber works, but also through partnering with other amazing Utah artists to create a dynamic and exciting concert experience. Since music doesn’t necessarily have to be made in a concert hall, Aspen Winds enjoys performing in every conceivable, and sometimes unusual venues; from recital halls to art galleries to unconventional spaces.rAspen Winds musicians also perform with other organizations in the Intermountain West, including the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, Orchestra at Temple Square, Boise Philharmonic, Utah Wind Symphony, Utah Baroque Ensemble, Salt Lake Choral Artists, and Utah Chamber Artists.
