Event Description: 

The Festival’s signature events, the Grotto Concerts, celebrate music in concert with the landscapeTM by combining the beauty of music with the area’s scenic wonders. A relaxing 45-minute jet boat ride down the Colorado River brings you to “nature’s concert hall”, a pristine, acoustically perfect wilderness grotto carved from the surrounding red rock walls.

Light hors d’oeuvres and wine will be served after the concert.
