The Grand Teton Music Festival presents a holiday concert with organist Kenneth Udy on Friday, December 14 at 7PM at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson. Ticketholders are invited to a reception in Hansen Hall immediately following the concert.
Kenneth Udy is the Director of Music at the Wasatch Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City, Utah, and appears as organist for the church as well as the Congregation Kol Ami, the Salt Lake Tabernacle, and the Utah Symphony. Mr. Udy is also on the faculty of the University of Utah, where he assisted in the implementation of undergraduate and graduate degree programs in organ performance.
