Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company



February 5, 2011

Enjoy the incredible Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, fresh from their international tour. This Utah-based contemporary dance group performs to critical acclaim, both here and around the world: The Dance Insider proclaimed, “Judging from the involvement of the Paris audience - in a rare occurrence, they didn't wait until the end of the show but responded with rhythmic clapping even at the intermission curtain - French audiences want more of this.” The Covey Center is pleased to host this rare Utah County performance.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.
Reviewed by Diane Marsh.

This is a sweet and simple love story as well as a historical novel that tells of the experience of the Japanese interment in America during World War II. It is set in Seattle and the story beings in 1986 with the discovery of relics stored in the basement of the Panama Hotel by American citizens of Japanese heritage. These treasures lead Henry Lee, a Chinese American whose best childhood friend was Japanese, to reminisce about that time in flashbacks to the 1940s.

Audition for a Brand New Symphony Orchestra!

All right, all you musically gifted community members! Here's your chance to pull out your instrument and join in on some symphonic fun. A brand new symphony orchestra, under the direction of John Pew, is being formed right here in our area and they are looking for musicians to audition to be part of the group. The Timpanogos Symphony Orchestra promises to be a dynamic group and John Pew seems just fantastic. He conducted a similar group, the Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra in Oakland California, and attracted amazing soloists like Jenny Oaks Baker. From my conversations with him, he sounds eager to bring great music to Northern Utah County and I think he will be a charismatic, fun, and sensitive conductor.

Here's an article about him and the California orchestra. And here is a link to the official flyer announcing the orchestra.

Auditions will be held on Thursday, January 27th, Saturday, January 29th, and Thursday, February 3rd. It sounds like other arrangements can also be made if you can't make one of those days. They will be held at the Highland Community Center, 5378 West 10400 North, Highland, Utah.

For more information or to schedule an appointment for an audition, call 801-210-2466 or email auditions@thetso.org

I've already signed up for my audition time and if I can do it (audition, at least), you can, too! Hope to see some of you there!
