Highland Fling Art Show Rules

  1. All artwork must be original work of the artist.  Copies are not  eligible, nor any artwork copied from an instruction or book are eligible.
  2. Artwork prepared or copied from another artist is not eligible.
  3. Experienced and novice artwork must be framed with a wire on the back. Youth and Children’s artwork should be matted or mounted on cardstock.  Framed artwork must have a wire extending across the back that is securely fastened to eye screws on either side of the frame.  We will not accept frames with the saw tooth hangers because they are not compatible with our hanging systems.
  4. If you have won a novice award 2 or more times in the past, you must move up a category to  the experienced category.
  5. Size limit will be 48” in dimension because of space restrictions.
  6. All work will remain on display through the Highland Fling event.
  7. All artwork will be family appropriate and must meet the standards of the community.

Every effort will be made to keep your artwork safe, but please be aware that there is no guarantee due to unforseen accidents.

5th Annual Ukulele Open Mic & Picnic
The open mic will be held August 27th, 12:15pm at Heritage Park in Highland as part of the 5th Annual Utah Uke Fest. Entrants will perform one ‘family friendly’ song (as kids will be attending this event) a maximum of 4 minutes in length (original or cover songs welcome). There are no entry fees. Order of performance will be determined randomly (so be there at the beginning to hear the order). There may be food vendors on hand; you can also bring a picnic. You may wish to bring some portable shade (though there are some shade trees) and a pop-up chair or blanket.

Instead of ranking ukulele players, the judges will choose one winner in each of three categories:

Outstanding Youth Performance (under 14)
Amazing Instrumental Performance
Outstanding Vocal / Ukulele Performance
Other categories may be added if more prizes are donated. Winners will choose prizes based on their random performance order.

We are pleased to announce the formation of a new Highland community choir, Highland Choral Arts. We have been fortunate to enlist the talents of Cathy Jolley, a renowned conductor.  This will be a yearlong choir with performances in the spring and Christmas season, with adjournment over the summer months.

Practices will be held at the Highland Community Center (old city office building, 5378 W 10400 N, Highland, UT 84003) Tuesdays from 8-9:30 pm.  A brief voice check will be done with each member to determine range, choir suitability, and section assignment.  You will NOT need to come with a prepared piece.

This will be a non-profit choir with yearly dues of $100 to offset music, venue rental, accompaniment, and conducting costs.  We anticipate a choir of up to 80 members.

Our first practice will be March 1 at 8 pm with voice checks starting at 6:30 pm. Please sign-up for a voice-check time at this link.
