Grand Teton Music Festival opens 49th summer season June 30

The Grand Teton Music Festival opens its 49th annual summer season on Wednessday, June 30. Here's some info from the GTMF in Teton Village:

With even weeks of concerts carefully crafted by Music Director Donald Runnicles and featuring the great classical artists of today, the renowned Festival Orchestra takes the stage Friday and Saturday evenings in Walk Festival Hall. The finest of the chamber music repertoire, eclectic crossover concerts and recitals, and free community concert offerings - including Jackson's favorite way to celebrate the 4th of July, Music In The Hole - round out the summer season.

Of course Donald Runnicles and the Festival's musicians will journey from around the globe to Jackson Hole this summer, but where you let the music of the Grand Teton Music Fesival's 2010 Summer Season take you is limitless!
