A Night of Family Fun With Gershwin’s Magic Key and The Reno Phil


Discover the magic and history behind the brilliant American Composer, George Gershwin, as the Reno Philharmonic orchestra performs Gershwin’s Magic Key, on November 10th from 1:00pm-3:00pm, for a FREE family concert.

“A generous thank you goes out to The Nell J. Redfield Foundation, Sara & Leonard Lafrance/Educational Pathways, John Dermody Ventures, and The Edwin L. Wiegand Trust,” said Laura Jackson Music Director and Conductor. “We are so appreciative of the community for coming together to help support and make this performance unforgettable.”

The story in this performance follows a friendship that develops over time between a poor newspaper boy, chasing his musical dream, and Gershwin. As the exploration of American music continues to grow between the two, the key to unlocking the boy’s natural musical potential is revealed. This afternoon brings the whole family together, including the kids. Pre-concert activities will begin at 1:00pm.

“Bringing families together is the best way to enjoy any performance and our family concerts are designed to engage everyone while telling a story through music,” said Jackson. “We hope you will join the Reno Phil orchestra on a Saturday afternoon with the whole family for a spectacular and moving story told through music and symphony.”

There are no tickets or reservations required. Pre-concert activities begin at 1:00pm and the concert begins at 2:00pm. Visit www.RenoPhil.com or call (775) 323-6393 to learn more information about the event and sponsorship details.
