The natural pristine beauty of the Arches and Canyonlands National Parks in Utah leave many visitors awestruck. The red rock spires, canyons and unbelievable natural arches are a wonder to behold. Like music for your eyes.
For one week in August Utah’s National Parks will accompany the magical view with music for your ears. The Utah Symphony, with rich history of national and international tours, presents their Mighty 5 Tour. In recognition and celebration of Utah’s five National Parks the tour will present four open-air, free concerts.
The full-orchestra concerts, performed against a backdrop of moonlit canyons and starlit skies, begin at 8pm and while they are free, a ticket is required for entry. Bring your blanket, and your wine, cheese, and crackers and enjoy this unique opportunity to hear one of America’s major symphony orchestras live and outdoors.
