The Holidays at the OSBA

As the noise of the holiday season dies down and we settle into a new year, we like to reflect on some of the magic of the Christmas season. The holidays are a busy time for us here at OSBA, and this year we successfully put on three great shows.

To kick it off, Ballet West presented the beloved Nutcracker ballet. Something about listening to the Overture of Tchaikovsky’s most famous work rings Christmas to my ears. The 2015 Nutcracker set a record in our box office as many families attended to renew a favorite holiday tradition or start a new one. Needless to say, the dancers and musicians left us all with visions of sugar plums dancing in our heads.

December twelfth we welcomed the jolly old elf himself in the lobby of the Browning Center. Young and old had the opportunity to whisper in his ear their Christmas wishes and also make adorable tree ornaments made from muffin papers. The Utah Symphony then treated us to a score of our favorite holiday carols, making for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon making our days merry and bright.

To close our holiday season, we were thrilled to have Five Carols for Christmas and JingleJacks give us stitches in our sides and leave us rolling on the floor after their hysterical performances.

All in all, we had a fabulous holiday. We hope that you, and all our patrons, had the same and we can’t wait to see you at our upcoming performances!

Classical Music = Smarter

CollegeKids

When I tell my friends about a symphony concert I’m going to, they get excited. Really excited! Why? Well, they are all aspiring musicians. Do we tell our other, non-musician friends about the concerts? Not usually. Because for some reason most people think that it will be boring…

Until they actually attend a concert.

When someone like me goes to the symphony and begins to listen to the music, they get excited and thrilled by the music being performed on stage. Music can be anything from upbeat edge-of-your-seat type, to the gentler pull-your-heart-out type of music. Melodies jump around from instrument to instrument and the sounds they can produce are so different and intriguing. Not to mention that watching the musicians to see the faces they pull and the way they move as they get into the music is quite interesting, and often entertaining in itself.

Notice the millions of studies done over many, many years. Listening to classical music (in addition to being highly enjoyable) can help make you smarter. This is because of the complexity of the music assisting in stimulation of nerve activity in the brain. Yes, all music can stimulate the brain, but because of passing melodies and complexity of the music, classical music is one of the most effective resources. It creates reasoning skills and keeps the nerves activated the more you listen to it. Preparing for a test? Trying to remember all that information? Need to wake up those memory skills? Classical music is the answer. See? Smarter.

If you are a member of Allegro!, a Weber State University club associated with Ogden Symphony Ballet, the perks are even better! Not only do you get to attend awesome concerts with the Utah Symphony, but you can get tickets for $5. That’s like, 50% off the already discounted student price. AND, it gets better! During intermission we have a room scheduled for Allegro! members only and we provide refreshments for a little energy boost before returning to the rest of the concert. Music = emotional and mental energy. Refreshments = physical energy. Classical music = smarter.

So the next time you have the opportunity to attend the symphony, don’t pass it up. The benefits are just too good to miss.

Educational Outreach

The educational outreach program originated in 2001 as a collaborative effort between the Ogden Symphony Ballet Association (OSBA) and the local school districts.  The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for secondary students to attend a live symphony or ballet performance at no cost with the hope that they will become future patrons of the arts.  From our experience we have seen that many teenagers and young adults do not have the opportunity to attend a live performance of the symphony or ballet.  The tickets provide a chance to expose these students to "new," exciting and interesting music.
