FRONT-ROW SEATS TO 'CONCERTS IN THE WILD;' CLASSICAL MUSICIANS TO PERFORM DURING WILDERNESS RAFTING TRIP

 CORTEZ, Colo., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Bach and rare birds, Mozart and mountain peaks, Ravel and river-running, Handel and great blue herons. The orchestrated sounds of flute, cello, violin, and viola will blend with the cries of wildlife during a unique rafting trip to be offered this June.
 An unusual setting for performances by members of the celebrated Los Angeles Philharmonic and Santa Fe Symphony will be nature's own theater along the remote Dolores River in southwestern Colorado, where sounds bounce off high cliffs and echo through deep canyons.
 Reservations should be made immediately to assure a seat at this eight-day "classical music on the river" trip, offered by Dvorak Expeditions. The popular annual event, now in its ninth year, will be offered one time only, June 4-11, 1993.
 During the expedition, there will be four formal concerts -- plus many opportunities to listen to rehearsals and impromptu performances. The music will be directed by Roy Tanabe, violinist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 23 years. He will be joined by flutist Nancy Laupheimer from the Santa Fe Symphony, and cellist Gloria Lum, violinist Mitchell Newman, and violinist Meredith Snow, all of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
 In addition to days on the river, there will be visits to ancient Anasazi ruins and a turn-of-the-century homestead. Deer, elk, bear, beaver, big horn sheep, eagles, hawks, geese and great blue herons may be spotted on the trip. Rafts are propelled by oars and paddles, with no motors to disturb nature.
 Experienced guides, skilled at boat handling, will interpret flora, fauna, geology, and natural history, and discuss environmental concerns. Trip leaders have thousands of river miles of experience on all classes of rivers.
 Cost of the expedition is $1,450 per person, including all boating equipment, river meals, waterproof bags, tarps, and rain gear. Tents, sleeping bags, and inflatable sleeping mats are available for rent. A deposit of $300 holds a reservation; full payment is due 30 days prior to departure.
