Congratulations Brittney!

Today Brittney Bowers auditioned for the Utah Valley Symphony. This was the first competition Brittney has participated in on this level and although she wasn't chosen to perform with the symphony, she performed the best that she ever has! The audition was held at UVU and her division was the Senior division which is ages 16-25. So she has some really big competition! I am so proud of all the work she has done and am very excited to continue working with her to help her reach her goals. Congrats Brittney!
