Message from the Executive Director

As a community and a nation, we have all been confronted with the immense upheaval and outpouring of emotion related to the death of George Floyd. The event and continuing responses are a painful reminder of the complex issues that challenge our large and diverse society.

As our country confronts all the events of the past week, we join our colleagues around the nation in reaffirming that we value all Black lives. We believe classical music has the unique ability to reach all of humanity, if we approach all of our community members in a way which welcomes them and respects their lived experience as an American. The Reno Chamber Orchestra and Nevada Chamber Music Festival are committed to including audiences, artists and composers who reflect and resonate with our city, region and country.

 I hope you remain well, physically and mentally, during this complex time. All of us at the RCO are working on inspiring programs and creative ideas to present our music as soon as we are able. In the meantime, I hope you find a healthy way to process your feelings and reflect on the challenges of this uncertain time.


Season subscriptions will be available to purchase in late June.
