Attention schools and music groups: the Reno Philharmonic seeks video submissions for “Home Means Nevada”


nv150_primary_rgb_medium2-196x300-9888392-3503980As part of the Reno Philharmonic Association’s celebration of Nevada’s sesquicentennial, the orchestra features a special arrangement of “Home Means Nevada” by David Bugli, originally composed by Bertha Raffetto, during its Classix Two concert set, a Nevada 150th Signature event.

The Reno Philharmonic is now seeking video submissions of “Home Means Nevada” performances from schools and music groups across the state to include as part of a video montage of submitted performances during the concert.

The Bugli arrangement was commissioned by the Reno Philharmonic and made possible through a grant from the E. L. Wiegand Foundation.

Over the last year, the Reno Philharmonic recorded several versions of the Bugli arrangement and then made available the sheet music and individual components to all Nevada music instructors to download and teach students.

The Reno Philharmonic encourages all schools and music groups across the state to record and submit a video of their performance of Bugli’s “Home Means Nevada” from the versions available on the Reno Philharmonic’s website.

Video submissions can be sent via email to Amy Heald, education director for the Reno Philharmonic Association, at [email protected], or via a YouTube link. Deadline for submissions is October 1, 2014.

Classix Two performances take place October 11 at 7:30 p.m., October 12 at 4 p.m. and October 14 at 7:30 p.m. All performances are located at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno, Nevada.
