Nevada Chamber Music Festival Dec. 26-31



We are just a month away from the opening concert of this year’s Nevada Chamber Music Festival! The festival’s eleven performances will take place Dec. 26-31 at South Reno United Methodist Church and UNR’s Nightingale Concert Hall.

If you haven’t yet bought your tickets, they’re available right now by calling (775) 348-9413. Or you can purchase them online.

We are offering transferable, discounted Festival passes – good for all 11 performances – as well as individual concert tickets. And we’ve done our best to keep ticket prices low, with many of the performances just $10 or $15! As always, anyone 18 years old or younger, and full-time students, can attend any festival concert for just $5.

Lots of information is available at our website, including RCO Executive Director Scott Faulkner’s video introductions for each Festival concert.

What will you hear at this year’s NCMF? You can enjoy our Festival pianists in “Chopin, Liszt and Friends – A Piano Showcase.” We’ll have all-Bach and all-Beethoven performances and our always-exciting New Year’s Eve Concert. By popular demand, world-renowned pianist and scholar Robert Levin will present another lecture-demonstration. And everything gets underway on the evening of December 26 with a solo piano recital by Orion Weiss.

The musicians will include familiar friends like violinist James Buswell and cellist Wendy Warner, RCO members like cellist John Lenz and violinist Ruth Lenz, and exciting newcomers like violinist Bella Hristova and cellist Mark Kosower.

You can also ring in 2012 with the festival musicians and fellow music lovers at a special post-concert dinner celebration, right after our New Year’s Eve concert at the Grand Sierra Resort. Cost is $110 per person ($50 of which is a tax-deductible donation to the RCO). A package including the New Year’s Eve concert and post-concert celebration is also available.
