A very worthy goal! Looking forward to hearing that.
It would be theoretically possible to bring a string quartet into the woods to perform with the background sounds but... the logistics of getting the audience to the site and other potential problems like a sudden downpour on fine stringed instruments kind of rules that out. Imagine a pileated woodpecker coming in and hammering on a dead snag during a performance! You've definitely got it right :-)
