Meaghan Heinrich, education curator for the Grand Teton Music Festival, gets some help from Lizzie Benedict during a brass trio demonstration last summer. The festival and Heinrich have a busy schedule of kids’ programs and off-site presentations in July — a bonus of the festival’s 61st season, which starts July 6 at Walk Festival Hall.

Teton kids are the luckiest. They grow up with clean air to breathe, expansive forests to explore, mountains to climb, rivers to float, a loving community devoted to nourishing their bodies and minds — and the Grand Teton Music Festival.

Jackson Hole’s classical music institution has over the years offered programs for its youngest audience members, but for its 2022 season it has pulled out all the stops. Family programming this summer starts this week — a week earlier than the festival’s regular schedule — with the first sessions of Monday Musical Adventures, led by the festival’s first-ever education curator, Meaghan Heinrich.
