(July 5 – August 18, 2012) From humble beginnings in 1962, the Grand Teton Music Festival has become one of the largest summer music festivals in the country, bringing the finest in classical music to the base of the Tetons for over 50 years. Seven weeks of summer concerts in Walk Festival Hall feature musicians from esteemed ensembles including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, New York Philharmonic and many more. The Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra continues a long-standing tradition of musical excellence that draws thousands to the idyllic environs of Jackson Hole. New works and giants of classical literature meet under the direction of Music Director Donald Runnicles. Season subscriptions, Weekend Orchestra series, “Pick 4″ series and single tickets are all available through the website. A number of social, educational and recreational events, both associated with the festival and not, also take place during GTMF, and the wise Culture Vulture would do well to take advantage of these; it’s easy to overdose on such a huge offering of great music!
