2020-21 Season: “Emerge”


Reno Chamber Orchestra responds to Coronavirus

The RCO players, staff and board collaborated to plan a 2020-21 season with concerts scheduled through June 2021. The season includes two concerts that were originally scheduled for March and April 2020, and four new programs.

These plans will be adjusted to reflect public health recommendations. We plan a full 2021-22 season, and recent progress with vaccinations leads us to be hopeful that larger audiences may return by autumn 2021.

Our team remains committed to creating memorable, intimate, and safe musical experiences. Please watch your email, visit our website, or follow us on Facebook for more details as we finish our Music Director search, maintain the festival’s momentum, and enter a new chapter of live, inspiring classical music.
