The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic is happy to announce the release of "The Master" a rare collection of sacred hymns performed by dedicated young musicians. It is a deeply felt statement of faith in the Master – Jesus Christ. The Lyceum Philharmonic is comprised of nearly 100 high-school musicians who come from many schools across the state of Utah to participate in an after-school music program at American Heritage School. The Philharmonic is one of five orchestras in a community program that boasts over 200 students ages five to eighteen.

The Lyceum Orchestra Program consists of five audition-only ensembles open to students ages 5 to 18. Named the top Arts Organization in the state by Best of State Utah in 2013, the Lyceum Orchestra Program has provided world-class musical instruction and performance opportunities to Utah students for over 25 years. The Philharmonic is performing November 9th with the multi-platinum recording artist Jackie Evancho as well as founder and lead violinist of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra Mark Wood and other special guests at the LDS Conference Center. The Philharmonic is featured on the nationally televised PBS Special with The Piano Guys as well as on their albums and YouTube videos. The Philharmonic album Hearts & Minds is currently available at Deseret Book, iTunes, and wherever fine LDS music is sold. A second commercial album is scheduled for release in 2014. These young musicians perform the masterworks of the classical repertory as well as uplifting music with special guests such as Jackie Evancho, David Archuleta, Alex Boye', Peter Breinholt, Paul Cardall, Michael Ballam, Jenny Oaks Baker, The 5 Browns, and The Piano Guys.

Performances for the 2013-2014 Season include performing the Ode to Joy from Beethoven's 9th Symphony with The Sterling Singers at the LDS Conference Center, the entirety of Gustav Holst's masterpiece The Planets, as well as performances with special guests Jackie Evancho, Mark Wood, Michael Martin Murphey, Daniel Beck, Jessie Clark Funk, William Joseph, and tentatively Piano Guys!


Talented young musicians come from across the state to be immersed in this family friendly after-school program. No matter where your young musician attends school, this after-school program would like to provide your family a world-class, mission-centered, orchestra experience. Whether your musician is a young beginner or one of the top high school musicians in the state, one of our five orchestras will open their eyes to the possibilities that only come when surrounded by other musicians who share high musical standards and a desire to use their talents to inspire others.
