Directed by its Mission, the Moab Music Festival provides “cultural enrichment and education” in the local community. Since 1992, these efforts have produced a variety of programs for both children and adults, helping them learn more about music and explore their own musical talents and interests.
Every child enrolled in the Grand County School District enjoys an assembly during the fall Festival, in which two of the Festival's programs is presented in an accessible format to students and supported by materials provided to the teachers.
The Festival Artist-in-Residence, a visiting professional musician, provides educational opportunities to the Moab community at various times throughout the year. Activities can include:
Hosting a show on local public radio.
The Artist-in-Residence for 2013 is Christopher Layer.
Festival Artist-in-Residence programs are supported by grants from the S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney Foundation, WESTAF,
C. Comstock Clayton Foundation, Quintstar Management and Moab Music Festival benefit events.
