Solo Performance

Students may also compete in the school’s Concerto Competition for an opportunity to perform with either the BYU Symphony Orchestra or the BYU Philharmonic Orchestra.

Conducting

Graduate students in choral and instrumental conducting have plentiful conducting opportunities in running the open-enrollment University choirs, bands, and orchestras.

In addition, graduate students and advanced undergraduates occasionally conduct pieces with BYU’s premier ensembles. Many conducting opportunities also arise in collaboration with BYU’s student composers.

Outside Venues

The Provo/Salt Lake region also has a thriving music scene and not just for students interested in commercial music. BYU students regularly perform as members of the Orchestra at Temple Square, in recording sessions for film, television, and other media, and in other ensembles.
