Bryce Canyon National Park invites you to enjoy an evening with Grand Valley State University’s New Music Ensemble. A concert featuring an original composition inspired by Bryce Canyon will be held at the North Campground Outdoor Theater on Sunday, July 10th at 7 p.m. This event is free with park admission, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.

 With the ensemble’s fourth funding award from the National Endowment for the Arts, acclaimed composers were commissioned to create music to be performed within five national parks during a 17-day, 4,500-mile tour. Hannah Boissonneault’s “Murmuring”, inspired by Bryce Canyon National Park, recreates the floating, ethereal echo of the canyon along with the push and pull of the erosion that formed the park’s otherworldly geologic structures. Original music was also composed for Rocky Mountain, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Canyonlands, and Great Basin national parks.

 Based in Allendale, Michigan, the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble is an undergraduate classical chamber ensemble dedicated to music of the past twenty years. The group has been profiled in publications including Newsweek and the New York Times, and has been featured numerous times on National Public Radio. Their album of Steve Reich’s “Music for 18 Musicians” was named one of the top five classical recordings of the decade by WNYC.
