Join us Friday, Aug. 30 at the Heard Museum in the Monte Vista Room for an evening filled with new musical compositions by Indigenous youth led by sound and installation artist Raven Chacon (Diné).
Since 1984, the Grand Canyon Music Festival has been dedicated to bringing the world’s finest musicians to Grand Canyon National Park in celebration of the power and beauty of this magnificent World Heritage site. Since 1985, the Festival has extended this gift of music to the students of northern Arizona’s under-served and rural communities, primarily at schools in the Navajo, Hopi and Salt River Pima communities. In 2001, the Festival initiated its Native American Composer Apprentice Project (NACAP) to extend its outreach to training talented Native American students in the art of composition. NACAP develops musical literacy and enhances critical thinking and decision-making skills through the study of music composition.
This event is free and open to the public.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. – concert starts promptly at 6 p.m.
