MORE ABOUT
IN A LANDSCAPE:

This Bend Oregon-based special event tour will be a part of Hunter’s ongoing Classical Music in the Wild” series.

Classical Music in the Wild is an outdoor concert series in stunning landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. This project brings a 9-foot Steinway grand piano to the middle of forests, fields, calderas and historical sites for classical music concerts.

To meet the acoustical challenges of performing in the wild, music is transmitted to the concert-goers via wireless headphones. No longer confined to seats, they can explore the landscape, wander through secret glens, lie in sunny meadows, and roam old-growth forests.

MORE ABOUT

Art in Nature is the aptly-named outdoor performance series presented by Wanderlust Tours. Throughout the year, Wanderlust Tours partners with talented performers to celebrate the joining of some of life’s greatest gifts: the moving experience of artistic expression, and the immense beauty of the wilderness.
