Created in 2004 Tune-UP! is an educational music project developed and funded by the Grand Teton Music Festival to provide Jackson Middle and High School Band and Orchestra students with more individual instrumental instruction. The Tune-UP! Program provides additional instructors, all local musicians, to lead instrument sectionals and give students individual attention about the musical pursuits.
A unique three-day string clinic brings together the 8th grade orchestra students of Jackson Hole Middle School and Star Valley Middle School and Barbara Scowcroft, the Music Director of the Utah Youth Symphony for an intense collaborative rehearsal and concert experience. Culminating in a public performance at Walk Festival Hall, StringFest transforms young string students from rival districts into one cohesive ensemble. CLICK HERE to watch a video about StringFest.
