Don’t Miss: Grotto Concert I, Sept. 2
"Music in concert with the landscape" is more than an advertising slogan for the Moab Music Festival. For its noontime concerts, audience members take a boat ride to a striking, red-rock Colorado River Grotto to hear a global assortment of artists including clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera, cellist Matt Haimovitz, and pianist Michael Barrett (the festival's director). The festival gets underway with a program combining D’Rivera’s Cape Cod Files with works by Schubert and Schumann.
