Over 200 musicians from UMSL and StLCC Meramec will present “Symphony Chaco: A Journey of the Spirit.” This concert, conducted by the composer Gary Gackstatter, and featuring R. Carlos Nakai, the world’s premier performer of Native American flute, is a celebration of the majestic beauty and deep mystery of Chaco Canyon, NM, where 1000 years ago the ancestors of today’s Pueblo Tribes built massive “Great Houses,” Kivas, ceremonial mounds and roads, in near-impossible conditions.

“1000 years ago, many human beings came together in Chaco Canyon to create something lasting and beautiful. May we come together as well in that same Spirit.” –Gary Gackstatter.
