JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
Since 2014, the Grand Teton Music Festival has seen a 51% increase in its total attendance. The Festival’s commitment to presenting classical music in non-traditional venues and formats has been instrumental to the organization’s successful audience growth. This audience initiative continues this summer with unique events throughout the Festival’s seven-week season.
Broadway Star Nikki Renee Daniels opens the festival on Monday, July 3 with a fun and festive cabaret-style concert. Accompanied by a rhythm section, Ms. Daniels delights audiences with musical theatre standards and her effervescent stage presence. Guests will be seated on-stage and served a complimentary glass of wine, transforming Walk Festival Hall into a cozy cabaret. Ms. Daniels performs at 6PM and 8PM. Only a few tickets remain.
On Wednesday, July 12 classically-trained cellist Ben Sollee comes back to Jackson Hole to play at the Pink Garter Theatre. Mr. Sollee’s eclectic arrangements are inspired by popular, hip-hop, and bluegrass music and united by personal narrative. This singer-songwriter-cellist promises a moving and soulful summer evening in Jackson. His show starts at 8PM.
Pink Martini ends the season on a high note on Sunday, August 20 at 8PM with a special eclipse-eve celebration. This multilingual “little orchestra” is ultra-glamorous, crossing classical, jazz, and old-fashioned pop genres for a fun and sexy big band sound.
