Located in Jackson Hole at the gateway to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Grand Teton Music Festival offers seven weeks of classical music concerts each summer. The Festival Orchestra is the centerpiece of Grand Teton Music Festival's programming. It has been led by such noted conductors as Michael Stern, Mark Elder, Roy Goodman, Eiji Oue, Peter Oundjian, and Ling Tung, and has featured such soloists as cellists Lynn Harrell and Jay Humeston, violinists Itzhak Perlman, Hidetaro Suzuki, Julia Fischer, William C. Henry, and Sarah Chang, and pianists Monique Duphil, Marc-André Hamelin, William Wolfram, and Zeyda Ruga Suzuki. In 2006, the Grand Teton Music Festival welcomed internationally acclaimed conductor Donald Runnicles as only the third Music Director in the Festival's 46-year history. Chamber music, recitals, and other special programming round out the summer schedule.
