    Hikers, don your sunscreen and journey to a majestic spot in a magnificent secluded canyon ideal for acoustic music. Among our most popular events, these scenic hikes offer unparalleled musical intimacy and engagement with the artists. At the trailhead, a Canyonlands Field Institute naturalist familiarizes hikers with the terrain and leads them to the scenic concert location.Cellist Jay Campbell curates a concert of unusual juxtapositions of the old and new, which looks forward to a brighter future after the past year’s hardships and sorrow. The program explores the emotional pain expressed in music from the Baroque composer Matteis and in Dowland’s Renaissance masterpieces. A recent string quartet by Caleb Burhans and Haydn’s  “Sunrise” quartet remind us that tomorrow may be full of joy.The concert takes place on the lawn of the scenic resort, overlooking the Colorado river and surrounded by towering red rock walls.
