The Grand Teton Music Festival has been bringing the finest in classical music to the valley of Jackson Hole since 1962. From its humble beginnings in a canvas tent at the base of Rendezvous Mountain, the Festival has grown into one of the nation’s finest music festivals. The Grand Teton Music Festival encompasses a summer season (July & August), and a winter concert series that take place in the acoustically-acclaimed Walk Festival Hall, as well as comprehensive education programs that reach the entire community. The glory of the festival is the extraordinary group of musicians who make their way every year to Jackson Hole to come together as the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra, under the visionary leadership of Maestro Donald Runnicles.
The Grand Teton Music Festival's 60th Season - from July 2-August 21, 2021 - will feature seven weeks of performances, including one week outdoors in the Festival Tent in Center Park at the Center for the Arts in downtown Jackson, followed by six weeks at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village. Guest artists include cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, pianist Yefim Bronfman, violinists James Ehnes and Leila Josefowicz, soprano Julia Bullock, and Broadway vocalist Capathia Jenkins. Other Festival highlights include a world premiere by composer Melody Eötvös, a Jessie Montgomery co-commission, and a concert of opera highlights with world-renowned soloists. Stéphane Denève and Miguel Harth-Bedoya return as guest conductors and Gemma New makes her debut. Under the baton of world-renowned Music Director Sir Donald Runnicles, Festival Orchestra musicians come together to gather inspiration from the mountain setting and to provide spectacular music for audiences. Festival musicians are featured as soloists as well as part of a weekly chamber music series. Single tickets go on sale in May 2021.
