RUPERT, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Wilson Theater in Rupert is starting a youth symphony and choir, and is looking for Mini-Cassia musicians to audition.

Stetzon Blacker and Jeff Gomez are both musicians from Rupert, and when they were in high school, they drove to Twin Falls to be a part of the youth symphony there.

But, they thought it would be good to have an option for students in the Rupert and Burley area.

Together with the Wilson Theater, they are going to be holding auditions for students in high school wishing to be a member.

String instruments, wind instruments and vocalists are all welcome to come audition.

“It’s a great escapement from everything else, they can come and be with their friends, and just enjoy playing,” said Gomez, one of the co-founders. “But then at the same time they are learning skills that will take them out, you know if they need to use it for college.”

They are encouraging anyone who is interested to come and audition.

While they are looking for high school students, they say middle schoolers who are interested should audition as well.

They are holding auditions on Feb. 11 and 13. For more information visit their website.
