JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING – July 7, 2014 –Thanks to the success of our annual fundraiser, the Jackson Hole Wine Auction, and the generosity of four donors, students can now attend all 2014 Summer Season concerts free. During the Long Reimer Winegar Beppler Paddle Raise for Music Education Gale & Shelby Davis, Sylvia Neil & Dan Fischel, Mary Linn & Bill Wecker, and Cynthia Walk & Charles Wolfinger all raised their paddles at the $5,000 level to ensure that any student who wants to attend a Grand Teton Music Festival concert this summer will be able to!
Grand Teton Music Festival is committed to music education and instilling an appreciation formusic in our community. Children ages four and up are welcome to attend concerts with music-loving adults. In prior years, tickets for children and students were $10. This year, the generosity of our supporters allows us to make these tickets free for the entire seven weeks of our season!
With up to five concerts a week for seven weeks (July 3–August 16) there is plenty of time for families to take advantage of this great deal. Join us Tuesday through Saturday for evening concerts or come out to see a world-class symphony rehearse on Friday mornings. We have something for everyone and kids can enjoy it free all summer!
