Classical Tahoe Festival & Music Institute
10th AnniversarySummer 2021
Each summer, Classical Tahoe brings together America’s leading classical musicians for a three-week festival of orchestra concerts on the campus of Sierra Nevada University in Incline Village, Nev.
The Classical Tahoe Orchestra includes virtuoso musicians from orchestras such as the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Seattle Symphony, LA Phil, and others. Highlights include world premieres by Aldo López Gavilán and Chris Brubeck, along with performances of Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Gershwin, Bernstein, Copland and more. Classical Tahoe’s 10-concert series delights audiences with its superb musicians, an intimate pop-up concert pavilion, educational programs, and majestic setting. The Classical Tahoe Music Institute and the Brubeck Jazz Summit engage musicians and audiences of all ages and abilities.
Live streaming and the PBS Reno Series on Classical Tahoe is generously underwritten by the FS Foundation.
Additionally, PBS Reno will record several Season 9 chamber performances for a subsequent televised broadcast production. Their award-winning production team will capture visually the artistry of the music, the beauty of the lake, and the stories of both musicians and patrons who make up the Classical Tahoe community.
While COVID-19 has prevented many in-person gatherings, this partnership will bring the story of Classical Tahoe’s world-class celebration of the arts to an over-the-air audience of 125,000 per week.
We are grateful for this opportunity and look forward to sharing the transformative power of music with you this summer.
