Derby Day


Derby Day 2019 was a wonderful success! We are very pleased to report the recent Derby Day was one of the most successful fundraising events in RCO history, having raised $65,000 to support our performances, education and outreach efforts throughout Washoe County! Thank you to all our supporters who dressed up in their best Kentucky Derby attire to celebrate the orchestra with a live and silent auction, hat contest, and more.

The RGJ sent a pair of photographers to our event.  Check out the photos at this link and see if your hat and attire made it into their collection.
