Moab Music Festival marks 25 years of music among the rocks

Moab was “kind of a little ghost town,” on the brink of coming into its own as a recreation destination, when Michael Barrett happened through on his way to Santa Fe, N.M., in 1991. The pianist and conductor was drawn to the place instantly; he returned with his wife, violist Leslie Tomkins, the next year.

Some of the most popular concerts take place in spots that are accessible only via a jet boat or a rigorous hike…Some things have been constant — a focus on education, a connection with the environment, a prominent presence for living composers.
