2017 Nevada Chamber Music Festival
December 27, 2017 – January 1, 2018

Join some of the world’s finest classical musicians as they gather in Reno to perform the great works of chamber music at the 14th annual Nevada Chamber Music Festival! Afternoon and evening concerts at South Reno United Methodist Church, Nightingale Concert Hall and Trinity Episcopal Cathedral include the return of the beautiful “Bach by Candlelight” concert and a New Year’s Day celebration complete with champagne brunch and an all-Mozart Festival finale. Our lineup of musicians is once again stellar. Repertoire ranges from familiar masterpieces by the likes of Beethoven, Brahms, and Rachmaninov to lesser-known works by composers like American master George Chadwick. Our internationally-acclaimed Nevada Chamber Music Festival is the perfect way to ring out 2017 and celebrate the beginning of the new year!
