Date: Saturday, October 27th
Time: 4:00 PM
Place: Walk Festival Hall, Teton Village (map below)

Welcome our New Conductor

Jennifer Levanduski co-conducted the Jackson Hole Community band in 2006. Unfortunately for the band her husband’s job pulled him (and her) away from Jackson Hole for 3 1/2 years. She apparently hadn’t had enough of us, because she was willing to take over the reins of the band when a vacancy in the conductor’s position occurred in the summer of 2012.

Jennifer’s experiences in music qualify her highly for this position. She has a Bachelor of Music Degree with a Teacher’s Certificate from Sam Houston State University, where she played in bands throughout her university career. She has taught for a total of 15 years at a variety of grade levels in the Houston and Dallas areas. Jennifer also teaches flute, oboe and clarinet at the junior high and high school in conjunction with the Grand Teton Music Festival’s Tune Up program. Additionally, she played in the Houston Symphonic Band for 7 years, which is a high testament to her musicianship. Her bright eyes and broad smile welcome all players to our group each week, and her enthusiasm is mirrored by the players in the band.

This, our 3rd Halloween concert, is her 3rd concert as our leader since she assumed the role of conductor in late August. We are so lucky to have her conducting our band. She has selected a creative set of music fitting for Halloween, including feet stomping, finger snapping, moans and groans, and other interesting instruments. Anyone ever heard of a sound tube?

It is an exciting moment for audience and band members alike to witness the band dressed up in costume. In Halloween Concerts past we have witnessed Valkyries in the flute section, devils in the clarinets, and other engaging costumes. Can’t wait to see what they come up with this year.

Kid and kids at heart should show off their creative talents and come in costume as well. And be prepared, all goblins and ghouls will be welcomed on stage for the annual costume parade. Get those cameras ready! Trick-or-Treat maps will be available after the concert for the kids interested in retrieving candy from generous local businesses.

In partnership with the Grand Teton Music Festival, the concert will be on Saturday, October 27 at 4:00PM at Walk Festival Hall. The concert is FREE and open to the public. Please join us for this fun Halloween event!

Music in Harmony

A showcase of your local nonprofit music:

As we embrace the fall season this year we want to invite you to this wonderful concert this month.  All of the major nonprofit music groups in Jackson Hole are getting together on October 16th at 7:00 PM at the Center for the Arts to present Music in Harmony:  A FREE one-night-only showcase of local musical talent.  The following are the participating groups:

The Jackson Hole Chorale, the Jackson Hole Community Band, the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra and Brass Quintet, Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir, and the Jazz Foundation of Jackson Hole

Each group will perform for 10-15 minutes.  The evening will then culminate in a grand finale of Carmina Burana featuring all 150 musicians from every group combined.

Our volunteer musicians, from middle schooler to senior citizen, have been practicing for months, and are excited to present their hard work and artistry to you.  Music is a vital part of our growth as individuals and as a society.  This event will provide the community with a sample of what its local volunteer musicians from all kinds of backgrounds and professions have to offer throughout the year.

Please show your support in helping to keep music alive in Jackson Hole and attend this FREE concert!
