For the first time, MMF invites families with children to experience the magic of music in concert with the landscape on a Family Music Hike. Adventuresome concert-goers take a half-mile guided walk to a secluded canyon to enjoy a concert designed especially for young listeners that highlights the acoustic wonders of the unique outdoor concert site.

Concert Description: Festival Artists play a mix of short pieces designed to introduce a variety of string and percussion instruments to a young audience. Interactive activities such as dancing in the sand, clapping, and singing engages kids and their parents. Be sure to save some energy for the hike back to the shuttles!
