Lyceum Orchestra

The American Heritage Lyceum Orchestras Program consists of five audition-only ensembles open to students ages 5 to 18. Named the top Arts Organization in the state by Best of State Utah in 2013, the Lyceum Orchestra Program has provided world-class musical instruction and performance opportunities to Utah students for over 25 years. Talented young musicians come from across the state to be immersed in this family-friendly, community youth orchestra program hosted by American Heritage School. This award-winning orchestra program is open to students regardless of where they attend school and with five ensembles each at different ability levels, we strive to meet every student at the threshold of their learning.

Each ensemble provides students the opportunity to perform concertos, classical, patriotic, and inspirational music. The Philharmonic 2014-2015 Season includes Sibelius Symphony No. 2, Beethoven Symphony No. 5 (1st movement), Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, as well as music from our recent album available on iTunes, Amazon, and Deseret Book. Guest artists for this season include The Piano Guys, Nathan Pacheco, Jenny Oaks Baker, Vocal Point, and Michael & Vanessa Ballam. The Philharmonic recently performed in the LDS Conference Center with multi-platinum recording artist Jackie Evancho as well as founder and lead violinist of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Mark Wood and GRAMMY-Award winner Michael Martin Murphey. This youth orchestra is also featured on the nationally televised PBS Special with The Piano Guys and has recently performed with David Archuleta, The 5 Browns, Alex Boye', Paul Cardall, William Joseph, Daniel Beck, and many more renown recording artists.

The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic recently released its second commercial album entitled "The Master" and is engaged to record it's third album this season.
