About Classical Tahoe Music Festival & Institute

Classical Tahoe’s mission is to present world-class performances, nurture community partnerships and provide educational programs that inspire, connect, and transform lives. Founded in 2012, the summer music festival and institute brings today’s most prominent musicians to Lake Tahoe’s North Shore for four weeks of orchestra, chamber music, and jazz concerts in a stunning setting on the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe campus. The Classical Tahoe Orchestra is composed of many members of the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony and other major orchestras around the world. The Classical Tahoe Music Institute provides education and engagement to students and the community through major programs including the Brubeck Jazz Summit, Classical Tahoe Academy, Musikgarten, Family Concert, and more. Classical Tahoe concerts are accessible to viewers worldwide through the free summer concert live-stream and PBS Reno broadcast series.
