Rizner is currently the longest tenured violinist at the Festival, which takes place July 4 - August 27, 2005, and is considered one of the world's premier summer music festivals.

Professor Rizner has performed chamber music with the likes of Joseph Robinson, Bonita Boyd, David Shifrin and Lionel Party, and served several years as concertmaster and soloist of the Party's festival baroque orchestra. 

This summer, Rizner will perform under three different conductors, including the recently appointed music advisor, Peter Oundjian. The others are Donald Runnicles, principal conductor of both the San Francisco Opera and the Orchestra of St. Lukes; and Jahja Ling, music director of the San Diego Symphony and director of the Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom Music Festival.

Musical America recently applauded the Grand Teton Music Festival for its "virtuoso orchestra that would make any city proud." Visit the Festival's official Web site by clicking here.
