arts on the rocks

Arts at the Rocks is a series of performing arts events offered for the community by Desert Hills Presbyterian Church (DHPC) Music and Arts Ministry.  Our mission is to work with high-quality, professional artists and musicians to provide the DHPC congregation and the community at large with experiences they might not otherwise have.

Our sixth season has all the elements to be our best season yet with a wide variety of performances offering the opportunity for extraordinary audience experiences.  Most events are free of charge and held at the DHPC campus, which offers breathtaking views of the boulders and the desert landscape to further enhance your concert experience.

With 56 years of rich history in the North Scottsdale/Carefree community, Desert Hills Presbyterian Church invites you to join us for Arts at the Rocks summer performances.  Stay tuned for the 2024-2025 season!

We’ll See You There!
