Welcome to a Listening Adventure

Music becomes the soundtrack of our lives and the Orchestra of Southern Utah wants to share some of our favorites with you.  Selections are suitable for children through adults and we value your feedback to or OSUCedarCity on twitter.

For several years we provided a "Baby Ears" cd to new parents through the Valley View Medical Center.  While we are working towards a new sponsor the Orchestra of Southern Utah encourages parents to provide quality music in the home as an enrichment and also to encourage children to study an instrument.

This new Listening Club is an extension of our commitment to increasing music in our community.  We will explore great classics, different instruments, and the interaction of art and music.  The music will appeal to all ages.

Because we are using publicly available websites parents will want to be involved in focusing in on the music and helping children navigate past the advertising images.


Let's start with 15 Melodies you probably know and where they come from:


Part of the fun of attending a live performance is watching 

the musicians and knowing the sounds of each instrument. 

This site helps with learning about specific instruments and 

musical periods with listening quizzes.
