The Reno Phil kicks off the new year with a unique performance featuring three of the orchestra’s woodwind players performing self-selected sonatas. The virtual woodwind showcase will feature sonatas by Schumann, Saint-Saens, and Brahms and will be recorded without a live audience at the Pioneer Center and in Colorado and streamed on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2021, and Sunday, Jan. 24, 2021. The concert will be live-streamed to ticket holders through a unique access link available for purchase.
This will be the first time any woodwind players in the Reno Phil have performed at the Pioneer Center since February of 2020. Due to the spread of aerosols, it is not considered safe to have woodwind players on stage with other musicians. The Reno Phil has been dedicated to finding ways to employ their musicians and this showcase is another innovative solution for the organization. The showcase will be recorded using high-quality cameras, microphones, and other technology and will include interviews of the musicians by Maestro Laura Jackson.
“This concert offers our patrons the opportunity to see and hear the instruments typically tucked away in the middle of the orchestra, up close,” said Music Director Laura Jackson. “The woodwinds are particularly fascinating because each one is completely different from the next, bringing a unique sound and character to the orchestra. In addition, we’ll have the opportunity to get to know the fabulous and dedicated musicians that play these instruments in the Reno Phil, and the pieces they’ve chosen are absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait!”
The performance will feature Reno Phil Principal Clarinet, Joshua Anderson, Bassoonist Eric Fassbender, and Reno Phil’s newest musician, Oboist Jordan Pyle. The soloists will be accompanied by Reno Phil Principal Pianist, James Winn and Jordan Pyle will be accompanied by Karen Stoody of Colorado. Tickets are $20 per household (or viewing device).
