Event Description: 

Hikers, don your sunscreen and journey to a majestic spot in a magnificent secluded canyon ideal for acoustic music. The trail blazing JACK Quartet, known for their focussed expert interpretation of the music of living composers, presents  a single work by one of their favorites composers, John Luther Adams. Known for his music that approaches nature as a canvas for extended sonic explorations, Adams’ music can take us to our own meditative inner landscapes.

These scenic music hikes, among our most popular events, offer unparalleled musical intimacy and engagement with the world-class artists that perform. Patrons are shuttled to an undisclosed location. A Canyonlands Field Institute naturalist familiarizes hikers with the terrain and leads the way to the scenic concert location. Hike Level: Moderate, approximately 2 miles round trip.
