The Reno Phil fans the flame of creative genius. Join us to celebrate the 125th birthday of legendary American composer, George Gershwin! Hear the sparkling and fresh unabridged critical edition of An American in Paris, as well as music from one of Gershwin’s earliest musical scores, the Overture from Primrose. Our very own Reno Phil English Horn player, Jordan Pyle, will have the spotlight for Daugherty’s Spaghetti Western. You’ll be transported to a land of gunfights, bank robberies, saloon brawls, train heists, ghostly stagecoaches, quests for gold, and revenge and retribution. Ravel’s Bolero, an audience favorite and known from the film Paradise Road, closes the concert with a brief spotlight on every instrument on stage.
