The Utah Valley Symphony was organized in 1959, and is a full-sized orchestra with 75 to 80 members under the direction of conductor Bryce Rytting These excellent musicians have varied backgrounds from music educators to private teachers and performance major graduates.
Jon Schmidt was born to German Immigrant parents, who gave him the gift of early education in music. Classical training fell on the fertile ground of Jon’s natural talents for music and hard work. Schmidt began composing as early as age 11. He started teaching piano lessons when most people get a driver’s license and he began a successful solo career in his early twenties. Schmidt’s 20 year solo career has included many albums, performances, and awards.
