Miclen LaiPang, a young violin virtuoso on the rise, travels from his current homebase in Paris to curate this special program of French and American music. Pianist Julia Hamos, another brilliant young American living in Europe, completes the star-spangled, bi-continental duo with eclectic dynamism. Moab Music Festival Music Director Michael Barrett joins for lyrical works by Claude Debussy and Amy Beach.

About the venue: An open-air river boat takes you several miles up the Colorado River. Surrounded by towering canyon walls, patrons stay aboard to see festival artists perform the outdoor concert against a red rock backdrop. A wonderful brunch awaits following this magical experience.
