|Lake Tahoe's Classical Music at its Best!||775-298-6989|
A Salute to America with Broadway, Opera and Patriotic music. Celebrate the Fourth of July with family and friends, close to home! All concert performances will be conducted by Maestro James Rawie.
Our 17th annual “BOPS” concert, is a delightful summer event that we perform in four venues around Lake Tahoe & Reno. Revel in full orchestra and chorus performances of patriotic favorites, be swept off your feet by great opera arias, join in a sing-along, and, if you're the highest bidder, you'll conduct the orchestra in "The Stars and Stripes Forever"!
Take just a sip of classical music as you tap your toes to the popular "Hoe Down" from Copland's Rodeo, and hear guest violinist Heidi Hatch dazzle with the Carmen Fantasy and Monti's Czardas. Father/Daughter team of Robert and Emily Bousquet will delight with Broadway hits, and Liudmila Mullin will taunt you with her seducing love aria from Bizet's Carmen.
Anyone who enjoys beautiful singing will love the duets and solos by our gifted operatic soloists Joy Strotz, Jackie Lengfelder, Anne Davidson, Amanda Price, Chris Nelson and Stuart Duke. Our delightful sampler includes the lovely “Evening Prayer Duet” from Hansel & Gretel and the impassioned Andrea Bocelli hit, "Time to Say Goodbye". The tutti finale is a toast to wine and good living with Verdi's Brindisi from La Traviata.
Grass lawn seating (general admission) at Bartley Ranch is free, and is sponsored by Artown. Free lawn seating is also offered in Paradise Park (South Lake Tahoe) and the Truckee Amphitheater (Truckee).

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.
