Soon after the midsummer mark, musicians from all over the country flock to Teton Village, Wyoming, an oasis of civilization amidst multiple national parks and forests. Known as Jackson Hole, this valley houses the municipalities of Jackson as well as Teton Village, the home of the Grand Teton Music Festival.
The Grand Teton Music Festival hosts orchestra and chamber concerts in the summer festival and a short concert series in the winter. During the festival over 200 orchestra musicians from all over the country assemble in Jackson Hole to make music together. Many of them come from prestigious orchestras such as the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and New York Philharmonic. Some musicians have been coming back every summer for over 25 years.
