Music From Greer… Nestled high in the pines of eastern Arizona, along the Little Colorado River in the White Mountains, the small rural village of Greer makes wonderful music each summer. During the third week of July (July 16-22, 2006) the town hosts musicians from all over the country for a weeklong Chamber Music Festival. Each night at 7:00 PM in a large tent on Main Street, just south of Molly Butler Lodge, locals and visitors alike are treated to musical selections that lift the soul and fill the spirit with joy — everything from classical to modern — chamber music style.
In addition to the concerts, MFG also sponsors a weeklong Art Show held in the community center. Along with MFG’s featured Poster Artist of the year, other artists are invited to display their works. Everyone is encouraged to stop by, visit with the artists, and view the displays from 10 AM to 4 PM daily. MGF receives a portion of all sales to support the concerts. Plan on making the Art Show tour one of your activities during this concert week.
Music in the Pines — Mountain Music — concerts with altitude. Any way you look at it, Music from Greer is sure to please. Plan a trip to Greer during the third week of July for a wonderful musical experience.
