The Grand Canyon National Park is home to much more than just the canyon itself. Scientists, activists, speakers, and artists of all mediums have visited the canyon over the years, sustaining the rich and ever-present culture of the park. Regulars of the canyon and visitors from afar always have something to look forward to, and it’s time to start getting excited about the 32nd Annual Grand Canyon Music Festival. The festival will consist of 7 concerts performed by three ensembles, and every one of them promises to be an incredible musical experience for everyone from the most casual listener to the most seasoned critic.
