About the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra
The Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra, formerly the Orchestra of the Tetons, began in the spring of 1999 through the efforts of several local musicians. Rehearsals began in a local church with about 20 players in attendance, many of whom pulled their instruments out of retirement and cleaned off the dust. The orchestra has since grown to include some 30 members with the addition of brass, woodwinds, and percussion. It is a refreshing combination of professionals, semiprofessionals, and amateurs, and they are always eager to welcome new string players to join them.
The mission of the Orchestra is to provide local musicians with an outlet to expand their musical ability, knowledge, and talent. A further goal is to provide the community with orchestral music during the fall, winter, and spring months.
