Moab Music Festival - Event of the Month
The Moab Music Festival, founded in 1992, uses the tag line "music in concert with the landscape". That's no idle boast. Many of the concerts are set amidst the vast wilderness of the nearby Arches and Canyonlands national parks. Using the natural acoustics of rock formations, the festival offers a range of chamber music played by top-notch ensembles.
Summer’s heating up, so get ready for the 22nd season of the Moab Music Festival. Cherie Yurco of Making Music Magazine talks about the thoughtful planning that goes into Moab’s concerts which offer a variety of musical genres, as well as Moab’s venues which are “remote scenic spots.” Yurco continues by saying, “The result…is a festival that presents the highest level of performance in a uniquely beautiful and intimate setting.”
