The Wyoming Festival is a 10-day chamber music festival featuring new concert music inspired by the wild and natural setting of Grand Teton National Park. The festival is held at the UW-NPS Research Center each summer.
Wyoming Festival chamber artists-in-residence -- world-renowned musicians, all of whom also play in the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra -- are led by violinist and Wyoming Festival music Director Holly Mulcahy and includes Richard Barber, bass; Mary Corbett, violin; Anna Kruger, viola; and Amy Leung, cello. Through a juried process, music composition fellows from across the nation are invited to participate. Also featured are composer-in-residence Rob Deemer, from State University of New York-Fredonia, and festival director and composer Anne Guzzo, a UW associate professor of music.
The UW-NPS Research Center is a significant center for research and community outreach. For more information, call Michael Dillon at (307) 314-9833 or email Michael.Dillon@uwyo.edu.
