Mission Statement

The mission of Grand Teton Music Festival is to provide exhilarating musical experiences.

Grand Teton Music Festival offers great classical and other fine music performed by outstanding artists for the enjoyment, education and personal enrichment of all whose lives we touch.

We are unique in that our exceptional musicians return year after year, inspired by the magnificent Tetons and Jackson Hole, Wyoming for extraordinary performing experiences in the intimate and acoustically acclaimed Walk Festival Hall.

Our vision is to be regarded as one of the finest summer music festivals by music lovers near and far; to be so appreciated by our audiences and supporters that our performances are oversold and our financial needs are fully met; to be valued by our community and those who visit as a vital center of education and culture for youth and adults alike.


MUSIC PROGRAM. For the past 50 years GRAND TETON MUSIC FESTIVAL (GTMF) has been presenting a summer music festival featuring major orchestral works, superstar guest artists, choral masterpieces and commissioned works, as well as spotlight concerts that appeal to broader audiences (e.g., bluegrass, ethnic music, jazz, popular), chamber music concerts, pre-talks and special events.

The musical centerpiece is the Festival Orchestra, an all-star ensemble that draws first chair performers from the country’s finest orchestras. The Festival also attracts audiences and patrons from every corner of the country, and the benefits spill over into the local community. Thanks to enthusiastic support, GTMF now boasts a premiere international conductor/music director (also head of the Berlin Opera), one of the country’s finest acoustic music halls, and expanded programming throughout the entire year (including Metropolitan Opera HD broadcasts).

Throughout the summer, numerous points of entry are provided for the general public and new audiences, e.g., free "Inside the Music" concerts every Tuesday to preview the week’s composers, discounted locals’ rush tickets, open rehearsals every Friday morning, and "Music in Nature" concerts in Grand Teton National Park and other sites.

The Festival has long taken responsibility for reaching out well beyond the concert hall to nurture tomorrow’s audiences, and the Festival has become a major provider of music education to K-12 students throughout the region.

MUSIC IN THE HOLE unites 8,000-10,000 people from the community with tourists from far and wide in an annual patriotic celebration on the 4th of July. The day is capped with a concert by the Festival Orchestra and thanks to community support, the whole day is provided free to one and all.

The JACKSON HOLE WINE AUCTION, a premier wine and food event, is the largest fundraising activity of the year.
