Inspiring Sounds

For more than a century, the sights and sounds of the national parks have inspired the works of musicians. Today, some national parks present live music, such as Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, where you can enjoy a variety of musical performances. Others, like New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, are devoted to music and its influences throughout history. Discover stories of music in our national parks, from the history of Jazz to modern-day performances.
