Summer Concerts and Independence Day Celebrations Return to Reno Tahoe

The Northern Nevada community is coming back stronger than ever from the last year that kept us apart from so many of our friends, family, and neighbors. Music is the universal language of celebration and this year Reno and Tahoe have wonderful plans to delight your musical tastes.

The Reno Phil, northern Nevada’s largest performing arts organization, is offering two performances of their extremely popular Fourth of July Concert at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park.

In conjunction with Artown, join the Reno Phil at their two performances on both Saturday, July 3 and Sunday, July 4 with gates opening at 6pm and the concert beginning at 7:30pm. The shows will be socially distanced and feature the Reno Phil Orchestra, Reno Phil Chorus, and vocalist Kyle Rea led by Maestro Jason Altieri.

“I am so proud of how this organization has continued to find ways to create music during this pandemic through our digital offerings,” said Tim Young, Reno Phil President and CEO. “However, we are delighted to finally be performing our first concert with a live audience since February 2020 in such a safe, outdoor setting.”

Dubbed “American Salute”, the concert will feature patriotic and pops favorites with vocalist Kyle Rea, a powerhouse who brings new life to old favorites while interpreting modern tunes. The complete details of the performance will remain under wraps until showtime and the Reno Phil is committed to presenting a diverse range of family friendly music for all to enjoy.

Indoor shows at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe’s South Shore Room are planned to resume in late fall, according to Brian Chandler, the entertainment manager for Harrah’s and Harveys.
