Witness an unforgettable performance from Cirque de la Symphonie as they perform daring feats of artistry. An audience favorite, they synchronize the imaginative athleticism of aerial flyers, acrobats, contortionists and strongmen, with the brilliance of the Reno Phil Orchestra performing scores from your favorite movies under the leadership of Maestro Laura Jackson.
Friday, September 28, 2018 5:15-6:15pm, Nevada Historical Society Gershwin’s Legacy
The first concert the Reno Phil played featured music by iconic American composer George Gershwin, and we will open this season with a nod to that history by performing two works by Gershwin. The lecture will also explore Maurice Ravel’s influence on Gershwin, and why Ravel refused him as a student! Come find out more in this lecture presented by musicologists Dr. Mark Clague and Timothy Freeze.
