Music and Nature

Outstanding natural beauty inspired both the creation of our national parks and the creation of great music. From June 28th through July 22nd, enjoy a fusion of music and nature while listening to the Axiom Brass Quintet in residence at Grand Teton National Park. The quintet will perform classical music inspired by nature’s grandeur at various park locations, often accompanied by a park ranger. This program is free and open to the public—come and enjoy beautiful music in a spectacular setting! Musicians play for 30 minutes (in partnership with the Grand Teton Music Festival).
