JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING

Grand Teton Music Festival’s celestial summer continues with world-renowned pianist Yefim Bronfman in Jackson Hole.

Before Yefim Bronfman and Brooklyn Rider take the stage at Walk Festival Hall, WALL•E will be screened for free on Monday, July 17 at 7PM as part of GTMF’s new Movies on the Mountain series sponsored by Teton Village Association. WALLE is the heartwarming story of the last robot on earth charged with sifting through humanity’s waste and refuse. After 700 years of isolation, WALLE meets new robot EVE and the two embark on a quest to restore planet Earth. Movie-style concessions will be available 30 minutes before the film-candy, artisanal popcorn from Jackson Hole POP, beer and wine!

GTMF presents Brooklyn Rider on Tuesday, July 18 at 8PM. “Take two violins, a viola, a cello. Add the world. Persian, Silk Road, Bartók, Beethoven, Roma, klezmer, Minnesota, Brooklyn, Philip Glass – and you’ve got Brooklyn Rider. The spell-casting, trail-blazing string quartet out of Brooklyn and all over.” (NPR)

On Wednesday, July 19 at 1PM, Brooklyn Rider heads over the hill to continue their residency with a Free Family Concert at Teton County Library branch in Alta. Known for their education programs and family-oriented offerings, the group will present a fun and eclectic 45-minute program suitable for our youngest music lovers.
