The Moab Music Festival will sponsor a Colorado River Concert, "Summer Strings," the morning of Sunday, June 23. The Sausalito String Quartet will perform, along with violist Leslie Tomkins and cellist Tanya Tomkins.
In a natural stone ampitheatre with superior acoustics, the ensemble will perform the music of Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. The six musicians will alternately be heard as a string quartet, a violin quintet and a cello quintet."Summer Strings" is a fundraising event for the festival. Ticket holders meet at Tag-A-Long tours and will then be transported 30 miles down river by jet boat to the riverside location. The audience and artists will share light refreshments after the concert.
