It’s the sixth phenomenal season of orchestral and chamber music concerts. Forty of the world’s most renowned soloists and orchestral musicians drawn from the greatest orchestras of North America and beyond, gather to perform under the artistic direction of Conductor Joel Revzen.

The inspired musical performances take place in an acoustical tent on the campus of Sierra Nevada College at Incline Village, in beautiful Lake Tahoe, each Friday and Saturday.
