Fresh Air Miracle for Classical Tahoe 2021 Festival and Music Institute July 30 - August 15

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The smoke has cleared as Classical Tahoe opens its 10th Anniversary Festival on Friday, July 30th which includes three weeks of outdoor orchestra and chamber music concerts, seven live-stream concerts and a broadcast series in collaboration with PBS Reno, and an unprecedented national initiative to increase diversity in American orchestras with Sphinx Organization.

Eleven prize-winning Black and Latinx musicians will be in residence, rehearsing and performing with the Classical Tahoe Orchestra, and taking part in a customized experience of mentoring and networking. Classical Tahoe and Sphinx share musical ambassador Weston Sprott, Classical Tahoe Trombone, recipient Sphinx Medal of Excellence, and Dean of the Preparatory Division The Juilliard School. The ultimate goal of the initiative is job placement for musicians of color in American orchestras.

The Festival program remains largely unchanged from the 2020 season designed by Joel Revzen, Artistic Director and Conductor since the festival's inaugural season in 2012, until his death on May 25, 2020, from COVID-19. Classical Tahoe's Founding Concertmaster, Laura Hamilton, is serving as Interim Artistic Director.

Conductors Ming Luke, Tito Muñoz, and Gabriela Díaz-Alatriste will lead orchestra concerts with soloists Laquita Mitchell, Emmanuel Ceysson, Nathan Hughes, Gilles Vonsattel, Amaryn Olmeda, the Brubeck Brothers Quartet. For a complete list of programming, visit classicaltahoe.org

PBS Reno will film and livestream seven concerts and a fully-produced six-episode series will air in 2022 and be available online and through the PBS Video App. The 2020 Classical Tahoe series is available to view free of charge at PBSReno.org/classicaltahoe.
