Grand Teton Music Festival Opens Next Week!

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING 

 The Grand Teton Music Festival’s 56th season is about to begin! The star-studded opening week is packed with exhilarating performances to kick off the season with a bang.

The festivities begin Monday, July 3rd with Cabaret Night featuring Broadway Star Nikki Renée Daniels at 6PM & 8PM. A popular event, both performances are completely SOLD OUT. Also SOLD OUT, Patriotic Pops returns on July 4th at 6PM. Please contact the Fritz Box Office at 307.733.1128 to be added to our waitlist for these two events, or, to return your tickets if you can no longer attend.

On Wednesday, July 5, seize your last chance to see opera superstar Renée Fleming in The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD presentation of Der Rosenkavalier. In one of her signature roles, Renée Fleming performs Marschallin opposite Elina Garanca as Octavian, the title character. Ms. Fleming’s performance received a glowing review from the New York Times for her “melting lyricism, subtle expressivity, and emotional vulnerability.” Presented at the Center for the Arts Wednesday, July 5 at 6PM.

Grammy Award-winning violinist and GTMF artist-in-residence Augustin Hadelich returns July 6-8. “A young artist with no evident limitations,” (The New Yorker) Hadelich is one of the most sought-after soloists in the world today. His residency begins with a recital on Thursday, July 6 at 8PM with pianist Jason Hardink, with a program including Ravel’s gypsy inspired Tzigane—a true crowd-pleaser. Hadelich then stars in the Festival Orchestra’s opening weekend.

Donald Runnicles and the Festival Orchestra open their season with “Masters in the Mountains” Friday, July 7 at 8PM and Saturday, July 8 at 6PM. The concert begins with an inspired overture from Wagner’s Die Meistersinger. Augustin Hadelich takes center stage with Sibelius’ much loved violin concerto. The concert concludes with one of Beethoven’s most admired symphonies, his seventh – a work that has been featured on stage and on screen, most notably in the Oscar winning film, The King’s Speech.
