For over twenty five years, Dvorak Expeditions has successfully provided Classical Music rafting journeys for all ages on both the Dolores River in Colorado and Green River in Utah. This experience is a one of a kind whitewater rafting in Colorado adventure with your own personal Green River classical music trip soundtrack resonating off the canyon walls, amphitheaters, side canyon hollows each day as we make our way down stream to the next wilderness camp. Guaranteed, you have never heard acoustics like this before.
When you go on the Green River classical music trip you can leave everyday life behind as you enjoy several days of world-class whitewater rafting in Colorado or fishing. Slumber under the stars and let our professional musicians treat you to concerts throughout the day and evening. Munch on fabulous hors d’oeuvres, a fine selection of wines and gourmet meals from around the globe. After a full day of rafting, enjoy comfortable seat around the camp while your musicians tune for the evening concert and your guides prepare the evening meal or perhaps a short wonder with your guide for a side canyon hike.
This popular and world-renown whitewater rafting in Colorado that Dvorak Expeditions pioneered over 28 years ago is river rafting in classic style. This “Bach before breakfast” trip truly defines the phrase “River Magic.” Unique friendships form when you combine athletics, teamwork and laughter on a river. We relax in the sun while classical chamber music performances by musicians from the Los Angeles, Chicago, Denver, NY Philharmonic and other top symphonies fill the surrounding canyons. These talented individuals play the viola, violins, cello and flute to create classical music that will touch your mind and soul. Our musicians come back year after year to share their talents with us on our classical music trip down the Green River, and we just love them! We often have special guests along with hidden talents who join in and participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Often surpassing the concert hall setting, the ancient sandstone caverns and rock cathedrals along the Dolores and Green River redefine great acoustics and set a new standard in musical enjoyment. Drift through alpine forests of Ponderosa pines and Douglas firs to arrive at your camps to listen to the works of Mozart, Bach, Handel, Beethoven, Quantz, Kodaly, Ravel, Hindemith and (of course) Antonin Dvorak, a 5th generation of Bill Dvorak!
We have enhanced our Green River and Dolores River classical music trip with extra days of relaxation to explore more of the ancient surroundings, Anasazi ruins, Fremont Indian artifacts and other historic highlights within the Dolores River (Colorado) and Green River (Utah) environs. We serve the finest gourmet delicacies on this trip, switching cuisines and countries every night from Indian to Italian and Thai to Mexican. Finally, also included on the trip are impromptu reading sessions, open rehearsals and improvised solos on wood flute for those more musically inclined. This is it! THIS is “River Magic”!
