Derek Han, Reno Chamber Orchestra (RCO) and Nevada Chamber Music Festival favorite and Assosiate Artistic Director of the La Musica International Chamber Music Festival, performs Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 19. Beethoven's Seventh Symphony is also performed, led by Maestro Theodore Kuchar, alongside a new work by Christopher Theofanidis co-commissioned by the RCO as part of the New Music for America project.
A pre-concert talk will begin at 6:45 p.m. and end at 7:10 p.m. Moderated by RCO Associate Executive Director Chris Morrison and featuring Music Director Theodore Kuchar and the concert’s guest artist, the conversation is non-technical, designed for a general audience, and typically includes a question-and-answer segment for audience participation. The talk and program notes provide information on the music to be performed, the composers, and the historical and cultural background of the music.
The pre-concert talk and the program notes are funded in part by Nevada Humanities, Nevada's nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
