Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall Players performs
Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013
The Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall Players (NRQ) will be performing for the Carson
Tahoe Health Auxiliary Christmas Luncheon (a private event) on Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013,
at Gold Dust West at 12:45 p.m.
NRQ is a group of adult musicians, some of them beginners, who get together to play music
at the Carson Mall each Thursday. The primary purpose of this is to give adult
musicians who may not be ready for a regular adult orchestra, such as the Carson
City Symphony, an opportunity to play and enjoy easy music. Several of the players
have progressed enough to join the Carson City Symphony.
