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.
