A guided scenic hike leads adventuresome concert-goers to a secluded canyon to enjoy music chosen to fit the setting. Among our most popular events, these scenic hikes offer unparalleled musical intimacy and engagement with the artists.

Concert Description: Violist and composer Jessica Meyer leads a quintet in two of her engaging works for strings, including double bass. Native American composer and vocalist Martha Redbone sings from her catalog of latest songs, and Taiwanese composer Shih-Hui Chen’s ephemeral music for solo violin anchors this concert of today’s music.
