String Festival Competition Winner

Ellie Evans

Ellie Evans first began playing the violin at the age of 4. She begged her parents for a violin and so the journey began one Christmas morning. As most young students can relate, the magic of that first moment wore off when she learned that playing the violin was hard. There were many mornings where she complained about how long Lightly Row was, or that there were too many notes to learn. However, with some perseverance on her part and some persistence from her parents, Ellie began making rapid progress. She took lessons from her mother until she began high school, and since then, has been studying with Christine Davis-Smaellie and is loving it! Ellie has recorded with the USU Chamber Singers on several of their acclaimed albums and has been featured on nationally-syndicated classical music programs including “With Heart and Voice,” “Going Beyond Words,” and “Performance Today”. She has soloed in Xian, China for the Chinese Choral Directors National Conference, and recently soloed with the Ridgeline High School Orchestra at the Utah Music Educators Association conference. Her string trio was the 2019 winner of the Mountain West Chamber Music Competition, but more than anything, Ellie loves the joy that comes as she serves others with music. Ellie is 17 years old, a junior at Ridgeline High School, and is the daughter of Cory and Jennie Evans.

Aaron Miller straight

Aaron Miller is 15 years old, and attends Box Elder Middle School as a 9th grader. He loves music and has enjoyed a variety of music electives this year, including band, theater, and choir. He first started piano with his mother as a young child and now currently takes from Anarie White. He loves sharing his talents with others through being a pianist for his church choir, accompanying siblings and friends on string instruments, and teaching piano lessons. Aaron has learned to share his talents and enjoy performing for others through the many opportunities that his mom has arranged for him to perform in the community.
