JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING
Grand Teton Music Festival’s 57th season joins the world in celebrating Leonard Bernstein’s centennial birthday with a Star-Spangled Season. Explore the natural world and the stars above with Mahler’s Third Symphony.
GTMF’s Music Director Donald Runnicles, a foremost Mahler interpreter, takes the podium for the composer’s most demanding work. Mahler’s ode to nature radiates calm introspection, torment, jubilation, and “heavenly life.” Utah Symphony Women’s Chorus, Madeleine Choir School Children’s Chorus, and mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor join the Festival Orchestra for this monumental work of art in Walk Festival Hall. Friday, August 10 and Saturday, August 11 at 8PM and 6PM, respectively. $25–$55.
