Classical Music in the Wild Returns to Smith Rock

Classical Music in the Wild Returns to Smith Rock

If you didn’t get a chance to experience “In a Landscape,” (IAL)—a confluence of music, nature, and technology, last year at Smith Rock, now’s your chance. The first performance in July sold out before we could tell you about it, but another has been added, for September 11. Hunter Noack performs live outdoors on his 9-foot Steinway grand piano. He hauls it on his performing platform to the middle of forests, fields, calderas and historical sites for classical music concerts. And back by popular demand, to Smith Rock.

The Rimrock Trail allows you to stay above the canyon along the park’s rim. The Wolf Tree Trail starts after you descend into the park and make a right across the bridge.
