The Wyoming Festival – New Music in the Mountains
Due to construction at the station, we will not be hosting The Wyoming Festival this year, but we look forward to having it again in the 2020 season!
The Wyoming Festival brings together composers and performers of new classical music, with an emphasis on nature, ecology, and creativity. Each year select composers are invited to attend and their pieces are played by local musicians. Several performances are open to the public at the end of the event to showpiece their creations.
See a video profile from one of the 2016 composers, Ayala Asherov Kalus.
