As the Reno Phil reaches its final few performances celebrating their 50th Anniversary, enjoy a historic performance by the Reno Phil Orchestra featuring a performance by world-renowned baritone singer Thomas Hampson, and concluding with a side by side performance of Dvorak’s “New World Symphony” by the Reno Phil Orchestra and Youth Symphony Orchestra. These symphonies will take the audience through the next “Classix Series: Trail Blazers” on Saturday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, March 10 at 4:00 p.m. at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.
“We feature the poetic words and letters of President Abe Lincoln in “Letters from Lincoln” written by Michael Daugherty.” Said Music Director and Conductor, Laura Jackson.
The Reno Phil invites the audience to experience unexplored frontiers and hear pieces that honor letters and notes from Abraham Lincoln in Michael Daugherty’s, “Letters from Lincoln.” As Hampson sings alongside the Reno Phil Orchestra, the imagination and flexibility that is revealed will create vocal magnetism and set new standards for musical performances.
“Thomas Hampson is one of the most gifted baritones alive today, and we are so honored to feature his work.” said Jackson, “It is such a special thing that he’s coming to Pioneer Stage to sing for us and perform with us.”
This concert is full of trail blazers that have shaped history and shaped the world we live in by showing the music’s richness, warmth, and depth. It will conclude with both orchestras playing the “New World Symphony”, a composition that earned its name by Dvorak during the 1890’s when he was exploring the United States. The Reno Phil is honored to feature one of the most recognized baritone singers of today and showcase talented young musicians in this performance.
