Each summer, more than 200 musicians from across the nation -- representing such esteemed ensembles as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony and New York Philharmonic --  journey to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to make music together as the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra.

Professor Rizner received a bachelor of music degree from Michigan State University and a master of music degree from Yale University. He has performed chamber music with Joseph Robinson, Bonita Boyd, David Shifrin and Lionel Party.

Musical America applauded the Grand Teton Festival for its "virtuoso orchestra that would make any city proud." Learn more by clicking here.
