My Awarded Projects
Moab Music FestivalMoab, UT
The Moab Music Festival was founded in 1992 by New York based musicians Michael Barrett (pianist / conductor) and Leslie Tomkins (viola). On a rare vacation, they both fell in love with the red rocks of Moab, and were inspired to combine the magical landscape with a sophisticated exhibition of world class musicians and music-making.
Now in its 27th year of creating “music in concert with the landscape,” the award-winning Moab Music Festival is noted for its distinctive programming, superb performances, and intimate concert experiences of chamber music, traditional, jazz, Latin, and music of living composers. The roughly 20 concerts of each season will be held across over 13 stunning indoor and outdoor venues around Grand County.
The Moab Music Festival, from its inception, has been committed to music education and cultural enrichment in the Moab area. It has annual goal of reaching all children in the Grand County Schools, providing school assembly programs with visiting musicians for students during the Festival. Educational experiences for interested music lovers of all ages are also provided at other times of the year through the Festival’s Education and Community Outreach Program.
