About Grand Teton Music Festival
The Grand Teton Music Festival (GTMF) has been serving the Jackson Hole community for 57 years. Each summer, more than 200 musicians from North America’s top orchestras and institutions of higher learning gather for seven weeks of orchestral and chamber music led by internationally acclaimed Music Director Donald Runnicles. The biggest names in classical music, such as Renée Fleming, Joshua Bell, Yefim Bronfman, and Yo-Yo Ma, appear with the Festival Orchestra weekly. The summer lineup includes an expanding roster of free family concerts, classical crossover and jazz concerts, and a weekly movie series, all presented in traditional and non-traditional venues throughout Jackson Hole. For the past two consecutive years, The New York Times has ranked GTMF as one of the nation’s "Top Ten Classical Music Festivals", while The Wall Street Journal has named the Festival as “one of the best places in this country to hear classical music in [the] summer.”
In addition to its flagship summer festival, GTMF provides monthly community concerts, a Winter Festival, the Metropolitan Opera’s Live in HD series, and several education programs for Teton County Students. The Grand Teton Music Festival is the single largest performing arts presenter in Jackson Hole with nearly 100 events annually. The Festival also launched a 13-part national radio broadcast called “Live from the Grand Teton Music Festival,” co-hosted by Donald Runnicles and Andrew Palmer Todd.
