September 11, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm MDT


Embark on a unique musical journey that combines an adrenaline-pumping jet boat ride down the Colorado River and a transcendental music experience in a naturally sculpted wilderness grotto.

These events, a hallmark of MMF, blend the mesmerizing beauty of nature with soul-stirring musical performances, offering a once-in-a-lifetime experience as hailed by Fodors. The concert pays homage to the deep emotions encapsulated by Brahms and the lively spirit of Mendelssohn.
