Created as a musical tribute to the sacrifices made by the country’s veterans, the program was written specifically for the American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic by composer Rob Moffat and orchestrated by award-winning filmmaker and composer Rob Gardner.
The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic has been named “Best Youth Performing Ensemble” by Best of State Utah for four consecutive years. Their 2012 joint release with The Piano Guys, “Beethoven’s 5 Secrets,” spent 48 days as the No. 1 download on the iTunes classical chart. This professional-level student ensemble has performed with David Archuleta, The 5 Browns, Alex Boyé, Peter Breinholt, Jenny Oaks Baker, Paul Cardall, Michael Ballam, Dallyn Vail Bayles, George Dyer, Jordan Bluth and Cactus Jack La MARR.
The Lyceum Philharmonic recently released their first commercial album, “Hearts and Minds,” which features sacred religious music alongside classical works by Mahler, Bernstein and others. These accomplished young musicians are all high school-aged and come from schools across the state of Utah to participate in the program.
“Tuacahn is excited about bringing this extremely talented group of young people to Southern Utah,” Tuacahn Artistic Director Scott S. Anderson said. “This is a special and unique opportunity for area residents to enjoy this patriotic performance.”
