Aug 26 Moab Music Festival Concert at Star Hall-
Extreme Weather. This program looks at how composers have depicted weather in their work- (Beethoven’s “Pastorale”) and used weather as a metaphor for our emotional lives. If it is “raining in your heart,” your internal weather is causing melancholy and pain. Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring” reminds us that April is the cruelest month, as the story of an ancient civilization ends in ritualistic human sacrifice to appease nature and ensure a good harvest. 7:00pm at Star Hall. Tickets online at moabmusicfest.org. See article pg 19A

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.

Sep 4 Moab Music Festival Concert at Red Cliffs Lodge. Copland & the American West. Known in the 20th century as the “Dean of American Composers,” Aaron Copland created what we think of as the “western” sound. His music evokes lonely, wide-open spaces, the wilderness, and the rugged terrain we think of as the American West depicted by old Hollywood cowboy movies. Copland has a shared background with Billy the Kid. They were both born in Brooklyn, New York! But while the “Kid” went west, Copland stayed mainly on the east coast writing pieces like The Red Pony and his ballets Rodeo, Billy the Kid, and Appalachian Spring. He remains an important touchstone for his music, which captures the time before freeways and airplanes and evokes big western cities. Gerald Elias, known equally as an author of musical murder mysteries, a violinist, and a composer, shares two of his works with us about early settlers in the Moab area. Grandstaff is a brief portrait of William Grandstaff, who homesteaded and ranched at mile 3 on the River Road (Highway 128). Conversations With Essie is taken from Essie White’s oral history of her days running the White Ranch. This concert will be performed at the site of the White Ranch, known today as the Red Cliffs Lodge. 7:00pm. Tickets and info online at moabmusicfest.org. See article pg 19A
