Performance Today®

with host Fred Child

Brass in the Tetons

Members of the Grand Teton Festival Orchestra take a break from performing in the park to pose for picture with Fred. Nate Ryan/MPR

Every day you get to spend in a national park is special. Same goes for live music -- concerts have the ability to take us places we never knew existed. So why not combine these two transcendent experiences?

A brass quintet made up of members from the Grand Teton Festival Orchestra were game to pack up their instruments and join us on location in Grand Teton National Park.

John Stevens: Seasons II. Summer III. Autumn

Tom Hooten, trumpet and flugelhorn; Jennifer Marotta, trumpet and flugelhorn; Gail Williams, French horn; Michael Mulcahy, trombone; Craig Knox, tuba
