In honor of Grand Canyon National Park’s Centennial year, The United States Army Field Band presents “Sacred Spaces—A Grand Canyon Celebration” on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019, at Ardrey Auditorium on the campus of Northern Arizona University from 3-4:30 p.m.

The Army has always had a deep connection to the Grand Canyon — from the first expedition to explore its wild territory, to its protection and development. The Army Field Band tells the story of the Grand Canyon in sound and immersive video, giving audiences a unique perspective into one of America’s singular national treasures.

“Sacred Spaces” features music that takes audiences soaring over the rim of the canyon, following the rocky path of the Colorado River and gazing up at the star-filled night sky. Hear stories of how the Grand Canyon has inspired awe and provided healing, from park rangers who steward the park today to the Native American communities who have remained spiritually connected to this sacred place over thousands of years.

The concert will feature a special appearance by the West Point Glee Club, and new music by Emmy-winning composer Jeff Beal as well as John Mackey. A co-presentation of Classical Arizona PBS and Classical KBACH, the concert will be broadcast live on radio stations across Arizona including DTV 8.5 Classical Arizona PBS, KNAU Arizona Public Radio in Flagstaff and Classical KBACH in Phoenix.

Tickets are available at nau.edu/cto. Live video streaming of the performance will be available on Arizona PBS’s website at https://azpbs.org/classical-live.
