Denali National Park and Preserve is hosting a special free string orchestra concert on Saturday, July 21 at 7:00 pm at the Denali Visitor Center. The concert features Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival's 16-piece string orchestra playing "Denali," a piece inspired by composer Stephen Lias' visit to the park last year. Special guest Caitlin Warbelow, an award-winning fiddler, will accompany the orchestra during part of the performance. The orchestra is led by music director Robert Franz. It is the first orchestra performance to take place inside Denali National Park.
