Celebrating 29 Years of Music on the Water
Two Unique Opportunities to Experience Music and Rafting on the Green River!
Ever sit in a concert hall listening to works from Bach, Stravinsky, Mozart, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky or Shostakovitch and wish you had some scenery to complement the music?
For over 29 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 experience 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.
Yep that’s Banjo Music… and yes we are on the Green River deep in the Canyons of Desolation and Gray in the UTAH wilderness!
THE BAND: Running Out Of Road
Come on out to the finest bluegrass rafting trip this side of the Dixie Line, It’s Dvorak’s six-day ‘Premier Bluegrass Roustabout’ with a rowdy group of folks! Running Out Of Road is an unbiased sampling of the demographics of their hometown: Durango, Colorado-a small western town full of active and engaging people of all age groups. The band’s music reflects the ideals and notions of life in a small western town: the mystique of the old west with its swift justice, the survivalist culture of the “new” west, or historical tragedies in the mines of Colorado’s mighty San Juan Mountains all make for riveting subject matter and refreshing instrumental arrangements.
FROM THE DVORAK’S:
We’re really stepping it up this year! With a personal penchant for Bluegrass music, we are ready to take Running Out Of Road down the Green River! Get ready for outstanding natural acoustics against nature’s best backdrop. The Bluegrass River Journey will make its debut August 6-11, 2016.
Once again, we’re bringing a new twist of music to the Desolation & Gray Canyons of the Green River in Utah. Running Out Of Road will blend with the sweet melody of the morning chorus of birds, rippling sounds of the river and the drum roll of the rapids. Guests will join members of the band on a six-day Roustabout journey setting up camps under starry autumn skies, playing daily near natural canyon walls, overhangs and on beaches, stage setting set for kings and queens.
This is one of Bill and Jaci’s favorite western river canyons and we guarantee this will be a life-changing, inspiring experience, and just plain fun!
