Guide to LVU Music Events During Musikfest

Hey, in case you haven’t heard… there’s a lot going on around here over the next couple weeks. However, even with Musikfest taking its 35th trip around the sun, it’s fair to mention that there’s plenty happening outside the festival grounds.

  • The emotion we feel from soothing music can actually slow down your heart and ease tension in your body. A warm lullaby sung by grandma can be a potent sleep medication for babies. The endorphins our brain releases through music can trigger emotions of happiness, excitement, bliss and calm that all contribute to stress release.
