Harpists ages 12 to 18 from both Salt Lake and Utah County now have the opportunity to receive instrument-specific instruction in a fun, social environment that serves musicians at a variety of ages and ability levels. Lyceum Harp Ensemble has performed alongside the BYU Harp Ensemble, performed with celebrity harpists, and have traveled and performed across the state. It is a unique opportunity that motivates young harpists through musical dedication, social interaction, and meaningful performance opportunities.

Lyceum Harp Ensemble, led by director Bethany Salisbury and other professional harpists from the community, serves students both at our American Fork campus and American Heritage School’s new downtown Salt Lake City campus. Both advanced and intermediate students may apply. Students in the advanced ensemble are expected to demonstrate musicality in playing advanced repertoire. Students applying to the junior ensemble should have a basic foundation of reading notes in both bass and treble clef, and should be proficient in changing their own levers.

Submitting an audition has never been easier! Click on the button below to answer a few basic questions and submit your audition video link. Most students use a cell phone recording from a recent recital or solo performance. If you do not already have a recording on hand, simply make a video of your best playing using a cell phone. The audition video should include 3 to 5 minutes of solo playing.

The preferred method of providing our directors access to your audition video is to upload it to YouTube, Google Drive, iPhotos, Dropbox or other file sharing formats accessible via a link. Please verify that the link is accessible for others to view and not private. Copy your link(s) into the appropriate filed on the admission form. You should receive a confirmation email upon submission and expect to hear from us soon regarding placement.

Rehearsals begin September 8th 2022, so please do not delay submitting your audition!
