An open air river boat takes patrons several miles up the Colorado River to a spectacular concert  location literally on the river. Surrounded by towering canyon walls, patrons stay aboard to see Festival Artists perform the outdoor concert against a red rock backdrop. An early return allows for a relaxed evening following this magical experience.

Concert Description: Franz Schubert wrote dozens of songs specifically about rivers. We hear the promise of fresh fish, life-giving water, recreation, and beautiful respite from everyday drudgery through his musical lens. This Floating Concert,  which includes the “Trout” Quintet,  puts audiences on the Colorado River, the perfect setting to reflect on the promise of survival and romance that harkens back to the 19th-century admiration of the life-giving waterways. It’s a reverence we share in the drought-stricken Southwest.
