Summer 2008: GTMF celebrates Bernstein

Brochures, fliers and postcards for Wyoming’s many summer events are pouring into the WAC office. We plan to feature a summer sampler in the spring issue of the print newsletter, which will be out in mid-May. Meanwhile, we’ll try to post as many events on this blog and we can manage.

The Grand Teton Music Festival in Wilson opens it summer season with a tribute, “Bernstein at 90,” on Thursday, July 3, and Saturday, July 5. Traditionally, the GTMF opens its season on a Friday but this year the Fourth of July holiday claims that day instead.

Donald Runnicles will conduct and Norman Krieger will be on the piano to celebrate what would have been Leonard Bernstein’s 90th birthday. This GTMF concert replicates his final public performance 20 years ago at Tanglewood. Other GTMF summer 2008 programs will invoke “the adventurous spirit of this imaginative composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, humanitarian, thinker, and entertainer.”

On the stage at Walk Festival Hall in Teton Village for July 3 and 5:

“Four Sea Interludes,” Britten; “Symphony No. 2,” Bernstein; and “Symphony No. 7,” Beethoven.
