July 31-August 15


Classical Tahoe is a celebration of classical music concerts and jazz performances in North Lake Tahoe. 

Under the direction of Conductor and Artistic Director Joel Revzen, the Classical Tahoe Orchestra brings together musicians from the Metropolitan Opera, Los Angeles and New York Philharmonics, Philadelphia Orchestra, the symphonies of San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Toronto, Vancouver, and other exceptional organizations.

Each musician is individually invited because of their unique artistry and experience.  It’s a thrilling experience to hear an orchestra of this remarkable caliber in this intimate 400-seat concert pavilion, performing repertoire most often heard in a larger hall. The audience feels as if they are on-stage with the musicians. 

In addition to the full orchestra concerts featuring guest soloists from across the globe, masterpieces of chamber music repertoire are performed each week. The Classical Tahoe Music Institute, inaugurated in 2018, offers dozens of multi-generational programs for music education, skill development, and appreciation to further inspire arts, culture and learning throughout the festival. Free events, including free concerts, and free family events are also scheduled. 

Plan for the 2020 season of great summer concerts in Tahoe; subscribe to the Classical Tahoe e-newsetter for news on subscription and ticket sales, music and news. 

"We kept adding more and more performances to go to because we knew we would not be disappointed. That is an understatement. We always walked out thinking "oh my gosh, how lucky are we?" Anonymous, Incline Village, NV
