Festival Orchestra Goes Out With A Bang


Grand Teton Music Festival’s summer of stars comes to a close this Sunday. Celebrate the imminent eclipse in Teton Village with marvelous music all weekend long.

Tonight, America’s most popular classical music program Performance Today hosts an evening of conversation and chamber music recorded for national broadcast at Walk Festival Hall at 8PM. Festival musicians team up for performances of well known chamber music works by Mendelssohn, Debussy, and Haydn. Pianist Garrick Ohlsson also makes a special appearance.

The final Festival Orchestra weekend reunites pianist Garrick Ohlsson with Maestro Runnicles for a magical evening of Mozart. National Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Nurit Bar-Josef opens the concert as soloist in the ethereal Lark Ascending.

Befitting the Big Bang finale of a sublime season, Mozart’s Symphony No. 41—the Jupiter Symphony—concludes the program on Friday, August 18 at 8PM and Saturday, August 19 at 6PM. All August 19 ticketholders are invited to join us on stage after the concert on Saturday for a post-concert celebration with the Festival Orchestra.

Crowning the 56th season with a special Sunday night concert, GTMF presents Pink Martini on the eve of the eclipse. Effervescent little orchestra Pink Martini blends pop, world, jazz, and chamber music into lush arrangements, creating a big band sound that allures audiences worldwide. Sunday, August 20 at 8PM.
