GTMF Summer Festival Starts Tonight!

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING 

The Grand Teton Music Festival’s 56th season, See the Stars in Jackson Hole, begins TONIGHT with two completely SOLD OUT performances.

The festivities begin with Cabaret Night featuring Broadway Star Nikki Renée Daniels at 6PM & 8PM, and the tremendously popular Patriotic Pops 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.

Conductor Donald Runnicles and the Festival Orchestra open their spectacular season with “Masters in the Mountains” Friday, July 7 at 8PM and Saturday, July 8 at 6PM. The evening begins with an inspired overture from Wagner’s Die Meistersinger. Grammy Award-winning violinist 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 screen, most notably in the Oscar-winning film, The King’s Speech.

Augustin Hadelich also performs on Thursday, July 6 at 8PM. “An intimate performer whose self-effacing quality allows the music to soar,” (Los Angeles Times) Hadelich is one of the most sought-after soloists in the world today. His recital with pianist Jason Hardink includes Ravel’s gypsy inspired Tzigane—a true crowd-pleaser.

 Wednesday, July 5 includes two opportunities to enjoy the Festival in downtown Jackson Hole with a Free Family Concert at the Teton County Library at 2PM, and The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD at the Center for the Arts at 6PM. Seize your last chance to see opera superstar Renée Fleming in Der Rosenkavalier. Ms. Fleming’s performance received a glowing review from the New York Times for her “melting lyricism, subtle expressivity, and emotional vulnerability.”
