july 7 – august 11


Classical Tahoe celebrates its 8th season of classical music and jazz performances.

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 soloist 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.

“The only things in my life that compatibly exist with this grand universe are the creative works of the human spirit.”
