The Reno Chamber Orchestra is pleased to announce its 2014-15 season! Our fortieth year features Maestro Theodore Kuchar in his twelfth season as RCO Music Director. Our guest artists include familiar friends like didgeridoo player extraordinaire William Barton and violinist Corey Cerovsek. We’ll also be welcoming for their first RCO appearances cellist Emilio Colón, pianist Martina Filjak, and guest conductor Tomasz Golka. The University of Nevada, Reno Chamber Singers will return for another collaboration, and the season will conclude with a performance by the winner of our annual College Concerto Competition. Music ranges from the Baroque to the modern era, from familiar masterpieces like Schumann’s Piano Concerto and Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony to lesser-known works by Kalinnikov and Britten.
We are maintaining our range of affordable ticket prices, and youth and students can still attend for just $5 per concert.
Season tickets are available for purchase online, or by calling us at (775) 348-9413.
We celebrate the conclusion of our 40th season with a once-in-a-lifetime weekend of music April 10 and 12, 2015!

These special concerts are in addition to our regular 2014-15 season.
A limited number of VIP packages is also available, including premium seating, CDs, a reception, and a season-concluding banquet.
