Fabulous program! An adventure of a lifetime in Arches and Canyon Lands, Moab Music Festival, a treasure of really with-it-classical music. Great Leaders of the festival and the program. Friendly "locals." Wow! sights morning, noon and night!!!! Including fireworks, private ranch site and then The finale ..the Grotto after a jetboat ride on the "chocolate milk" Colorado River.

A truly wonderful experience attending musical concerts at the Moab Musical Festival all in very interesting locations and trips to the National and State Parks around Moab. What a great night when the ranch concert ended with a fireworks show against the red cliffs of the Colorado River.

This is a terrific travel adventure...some awesome time with nature combined with music escapes with surprising expansions of one's relationship to our beautiful USA country!

There are not enough superlatives to describe this program! The sheer beauty of both the setting and the music were perfectly merged. Highlights were numerous: the Grotto concert via jet boat, the fireworks, the hikes and ranger talks, the music, the special guest speakers, the meals... Bill and his crew put together five special days of non-stop memorable activity. As always, the participants shared like interests and new friendships were formed. This one is definitely a keeper!

This well-organized, delightful trip popped me out of my little bubble. I feel I've grown and am sorry it was so short.

The MOAB Music Festival (MOAB, Utah) provides an excellent opportunity to combine visits to the stimulating national and state parks in this most interesting desert environment with the diverse music opportunities (classical, jazz, pops) afforded by the music festival which takes place only in August - September each year. The program is carefully crafted by the leadership team.

Great program, knowledgable leaders and instructors, beautiful setting and music. I would recommend this program to anyone who enjoys classical music balanced with an active program of outdoor activities.

This program was a good mix of daytime activities visiting the beautiful landscape at State & National Parks, along with the wonderful variety of music offered in natural, mainly outdoor settings. I felt like a VIP, being able to go to the "limited" availability concerts where tickets have to be obtained months in advance.
