Red Rock Serenade

Original Airdate: 
June 2014

A sight and sound celebration of the natural landscape of the Southwest.

From towering, wind-carved spires to graceful arches, to the thundering power of rivers carving breathtaking canyons, the unique landscape of the American Southwest explodes in a celebration of sight and sound in Red Rock Serenade.

A compelling departure from much of television fare, Red Rock Serenade takes viewers on a meditative journey through breathtaking scenery of the American West’s iconic red rock country, including Arches, Bryce Canyon, Zion, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Grand Canyon National Parks — all set to music by some of the world's greatest classical composers including Bach, Brahms, Chopin, and Beethoven.

The program does not use narration, choosing instead to let the music guide viewers to pristine destinations they may have visited, or to enjoy an unparalleled introduction to the stark and beautiful landscape of the Colorado Plateau.

 The film, which includes stunning aerial shots, shows the sharply divergent geological character of the area. The ancient footprints of indigenous people are captured as well through centuries-old structures in stunning locations.

Red Rock Serenade  is produced by Salt Lake City public television station KUED-TV, which also produced Grand Canyon Serenade, Yellowstone Serenade and Desert Dreams.
