Every August-September, the award-winning Moab Music Festival brings world-class musicians to stunning red rock venues around Moab for a feast of chamber music, jazz, and traditional music concerts. We call it "music in concert with the landscape," celebrating old and new chamber music, jazz with a Latin flavor, and traditional music from around the globe.
The Moab Music Festival celebrates its 26th season! The two-week festival is a journey like no other with world-class musicians playing classical masterworks, jazz vocal groups, Broadway stars, Appalachian reels, and music from all over the globe within the magical canyon lands of Moab, Utah. Concert goers enjoy hikes to "secret" locations where they listen to incredible recitals of live music amidst the magnificent natural beauty of the sandstone. The festival also includes water-rafting concert adventures, family picnics, and concerts within the newly renovated concert hall and private recital concerts in nearby homes.
