5/5/09: Red Rock Rondo

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – For 20 years, composer Phillip Bimstein has been part of the rural community around Zion National Park. The park is marking its 100th anniversary this year, and for Bimstein, it's the perfect opportunity to celebrate not just the landscape, but also the history and the people who are part of it. Phillip Bimstein has set some of the stories of Zion to music, and Tuesday, he joins us - along with the musicians of Red Rock Rondo - to explore the people and the place.
