Grand Teton Music Festival

Monday Afternoon at 1 p.m.
  • Hosted by Maestro Donald Runnicles and Andrew Palmer Todd

Beginning Monday, February 4, 2019 Red River Radio brings you 13 weeks of concerts from the Grand Teton Music Festival.

The Grand Teton Music Festival was founded in 1962 as a part of a movement to actively develop cultural activities in Jackson Hole. The Festival was initially produced by the Jackson Hole Fine Arts Festival, and with the appointment of Ling Tung as music director in 1968, the Festival began growing into the organization we know and cherish today. Ling conducted concerts in a canvas tent at the base of Rendezvous Mountain in Teton Village. Envisioning the Festival as a summer retreat for the country’s top classical musicians, Ling and his spouse, Margot Walk, worked tirelessly with the Jackson community to open Walk Festival Hall in 1974. Through the years, the Grand Teton Music Festival has grown into one of the nation’s finest orchestral organizations, a tradition that continues to this day with our current Music Director, Maestro Donald Runnicles.
