Harpists from across Utah 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. With a focus on faith, patriotism, and excellence our students learn to LOVE music MORE through musical service, creating meaningful media and inspiring events.

Led by directors Julie Gaisford Keyes, our young musicians network with top university and professional harp organizations gaining prestigious performance opportunities that serve aspiring harpists while building character and a greater love for lifelong learning. Intermediate and advanced students are encouraged to apply. Audition should demonstrate the student’s best playing. Memorization and accompaniment are optional.

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, so please do not delay submitting your audition!
