Soirée Fundraisers with Sarah Coyl

SARAH COYL, violin — Heralded by Reno Arts News for her "tender" playing, Sarah Coyl enjoys a diverse musical career playing and teaching violin and viola. She is a member of the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and an instructor of violin at UNR. As an emerging chamber musician, she has performed on viola with world-renowned pianist Joyce Yang. She earned her Master's degree from the University of Nevada, Reno, where she won an opportunity to play the Sibelius Violin Concerto with the University Orchestra. Coyl has collaborated with folk and rock bands, even performing with Michael Bolton and Johnny Mathis. Her latest endeavor is an album project of her own arrangements of music from Tchaikovsky’s ballets, arranged for violin and guitar. The album will be published with PARMA recordings and release is slated for early 2023. Sarah Coyl performs on a nearly-new Violin, completed in early 2022 by Reno NV Luthier Tim Dodd.

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.
