JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING | April 14, 2015 —Season 54 of the Grand Teton Music Festival is on its way starting July 1 and running through August 15, 2015. Get your tickets early, and put concerts on your summer calendar for seven weeks of musical bliss!
This year’s Festival will be one to be remembered with new platforms for presenting fantastic musicians throughout the summer. The season kicks-off with two concerts with seating on-stage at Walk Festival Hall. July 1, pianist Denis Kozhukhin plays a one-hour recital. Then July 2 star vocalist Doug LaBrecque sings Broadway hits to an audience in a cabaret-style seating on Walk Hall’s stage. Tickets include one glass of Landmark Vineyards wine. The recital July 1 has already sold out so get your tickets for the rest of the season soon!
During Season 54 GTMF will also host two Artists in Residence for weeks of performances throughout the valley. Cellist Alisa Weilerstein (July 13–18) and Guitarist Pablo Villegas (August 3–8) will be in-residence and will perform with Festival musicians and at free Family-Friendly concerts.
GTMF’s July 4 concert will once again take place at Walk Festival Hall, on Saturday, July 4. It is a free, but ticketed event so get your tickets now.
Speaking with Music Director Donald Runnicles recently, he is looking forward to presenting surprising pairings including Bernstein and Mahler, and Vaughan Williams and Mozart, and to continuing his exploration of Beethoven’s symphonies with the Festival Orchestra playing Symphony No. 3, “Eroica.”
This season is packed with fascinating couplings and stellar concerts. Guest conductor Edo de Waart will take the podium for Schubert’s Ninth Symphony. Guest Osmo Vänskä will conduct Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony, and we will welcome stars James Ehnes (violin), and Kelley O’Connor (mezzo-soprano) back to the GTMF stage.
Our GTMF Presents series features varied musicians stretching the bounds of what classical music means. Famed fiddler Mark O’Connor and Harmonica-phenomenon Corky Siegel will both play original works, and Guitarist Pablo Villegas will team up with lauded violinist Augustin Hadelich and renowned pianist Joyce Yang for a celebration of South American music entitled Tango Song & Dance.
In terms of ticket pricing, the GTMF promise moving forward is to make seats in Walk Festival Hall and for all of our concerts evermore accessible with consistent special offers. Rush Tickets are now Day-Of Rush Tickets. Meaning they will be available starting at 10am the day-of each and every concert. You can purchase them online, in-person or by phone. If you like to plan ahead, we have also opened up the back three rows of seats to be available for $25 for all concerts ahead of time.
