CLASSICAL NOTES: GTMF closes the season
JACKSON HOLE, WYO - After another stellar run, this season’s Grand Teton Music Festival has reached its closing week. This Wednesday’s Spotlight Concert is “Bravo Broadway,” featuring the Tony Award-winning Debbie Gravitte, Helen Hayes Award-recipient Chistiane Noll, and Doug LaBrecque, original cast member of “Showboat.”
These show stage experts will perform staple selections from the Broadway greats including Cole Porter, George and Ira Gershwin, and John Kander, to name a few.
Thursday’s Musician’s Choice features the prolific American contemporary composer David Sampson’s What the Living Do, followed by Piotr Iliych Tchaikovsky’s String Quartet No. 1 in D Major and his beautifully melodramatic String Sextet in D minor.
It’s a Tchaikovsky kind of week, as the closing concerts will feature three magical selections from this Russian composer. Festival Maestro Donald Runnicles will lead the orchestra through Tchaikovsky’s fantastical Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture in what may perhaps be the most widely recognizable love theme ever written. The talented Yefim Bronfman will then tickle the ivories to the tune of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, and the evening will close with the romantic Symphony No. 4.
Don’t forget that booze is now permitted in Walk Festival Hall. Locals Rush tickets are available for $15 to patrons with an Idaho or Wyoming identification 30 minutes prior to every show. Call 307-733-1128 or visit www.gtmf.org.
