About The Event
Winners of the 2019 Donald Runnicles Musical Arts Scholarship Competition return to Jackson Hole to perform an evening of chamber music.
In 2018, the Grand Teton Music Festival launched a scholarship competition in honor of Music Director Donald Runnicles. The annual competition is open to graduating high school seniors from Wyoming, Idaho, and Montana who are pursuing college studies in music. After submitting an audition video, semi-finalists are invited to perform in a daylong celebration of music at Walk Festival Hall, where they compete for the scholarship prize money in front of GTMF’s panel of renowned judges and a live audience.
At the 2019 competition, pianist Marshall McCall, cellist Alexis DePaolo, and baritone Brian Wacker won first, second, and third prizes respectively.Their awards have been applied toward their ongoing study of music at the academic institution in which they’ve enrolled.
