Amanda Flosbach (Executive Director, Teton Music School) is passionate about supporting the arts.
As a young musician, she was inspired by the support she received in learning her craft, and now Amanda is honored to lead Teton Music School in its mission to provide accessible music education throughout our community. With more than two decades of experience in arts administration, marketing, and fundraising, Amanda has worked for Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Minnesota Orchestra, the Indiana University School of Music, Grand Teton Music Festival, and, most recently, Dancers’ Workshop.
Working in the arts in a small community, she finds daily inspiration in the challenge of building an audience where there might not otherwise be one and is committed to building bridges within the community and between the community and the larger arts world. Specializing in new initiatives and project-based work, she helped to implement an open rehearsal program for inner-city students with the CSO, bring The Met/LIVE broadcasts to GTMF, spearhead a multi-organization destination marketing effort to promote the arts in Jackson Hole, run an art gallery out of her home and formulate a new gala format for Dancers' Workshop.
Active in local events and performances, she plays French horn in the Jackson Hole Brass Quintet, served on the boards of JH Chamber of Commerce, Riot Act, Inc. and the Old Bill's Fun Run committee, and performs in community theater and cultural offerings. Amanda grew up in Wisconsin and holds a BA in Music, Spanish and Public Relations from the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire with post-graduate work in Music and German literature from the University of Minnesota. A Jackson resident since 2002, she loves cooking, travel, wide-open natural spaces and opportunities to be both on stage and behind the scenes.
