The first Soiree will take place in Incline Village on Saturday, July 31 at 4:00pm.
The Second Soiree will take place in Genoa, NV on Saturday, August 7, also at 4:00pm.
A Third and unique Soiree, David Brock's Hot Agust Pipes, will take place in Zephyr Cove, NV on Thursday, August 12 at 5:00pm. In this Soiree, featuring different musicians and guests, music for Organ and Piano will be featured. The home was built around a magnificent pipe organ. Fine wines, snacks and conversations are again in abundance.
Due to the close proximity of musicians and guests, we must insist that ALL attendees be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in advance. Tickets are tax-deductible and cost $125 per person. All Soirees are likely to sell out in advance, so book your tickets early. Please Click here for Soiree Tickets.
The Toccata-Tahoe Symphony Orchestra will be performing three Romantic Masterworks at a series of Concerts in August:
The Concerts begin with Beethoven's Symphony #1 in C major Op.21, in which he begins to transition from Classical styles and forms.
This will be followed by a crowd-pleasing Brahms Masterpiece, the Academic Festival Overture, Op 80.
The concerts will conclude with the challenging and famous Concerto #2 in C minor, by Sergei Rachmaninoff. Pianist Nada will be Soloist for the Rachmaninoff.
All concert performances will be conducted by Maestro James Rawie. Click on any location to see a map:
General admission is $30 for adults and $25 for seniors. Young persons, under age 23, enjoy FREE admission. "Front and Center" preferred seating prices are $40 for adults and $15 for youth/students. Click here for Advance Tickets.
The 'Memorial' concerts occur in remembrance of September 11, 2001. They also memorialize the loss of other persons. All concert performances will be conducted by Maestro James Rawie. Specific locations will be announced shortly.
Although this upcoming Tour is sold out, we are creating a 'waiting list'. (It is likely that a few currently-reserved attendees will need to cancel, due to unforseen circumstances. Several persons on the waiting list will probably be invited to attend.)
On this Tour, you will travel with 25 Singers, 12 members of our Orchestra, and our other "boosters" in a tour of Southern France and the exciting Spanish City of Barcelona. TOCCATA will perform 5 concerts in fabulous Churches, including the Barcelona Cathedral Gaudi (shown), with fabulous violin soloist Elizabeth Pitcairn.
The complete itinerary is subject to change. You will be able to fly to and from Reno with the main group, or you also will be free to make your own travel arrangements.
The Toccata-Tahoe Orchestra and Chorus is delighted to announce the Release of a new, jumbo-length CD. It features performances of works by Antonio Vivaldi, the "Red Priest" of Venice.
Performances date from 2015 through 2020, and they occurred at a number of different Reno-Tahoe area churches. Elizabeth Pitcairn plays the 'Winter' Concerto from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, and the Vivaldi Gloria in D Major is performed in it's entirety. The much-loved "Violin Concerto in A Minor" is also present, performed by Brune Macary.
A "Triple" Concerto in D minor is performed by Brune Macary and Virginia Bowman on Violin, and by Charles Taggert on Cello.
And, from a 2020 performance, The Concerto for 2 horns in F Major is performed by Bruce Kanzelmeyer and Kevin Miescke on French Horn. This also features Nick Haines, as Solo Cello, and David Brock, on Harpsichord Continuo.
The CD is available for purchase Here.
