Carson City Symphony was founded in 1984 as the Carson City Chamber Orchestra and gave its first concert in October that year. It is a community orchestra open to amateur and volunteer professional musicians. Members come from all walks of life and have ranged from elementary school students to senior citizens. The Symphony performs five or more concerts each year for audiences in Carson City. It also has performed in Minden, Gardnerville, Fallon, South Lake Tahoe, and Virginia City. We play many works by contemporary composers and have commissioned and premiered several pieces.

Photograph of Members of the Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall Players

Media release: October 18, 2017: Not Quite Ready for Carnegie Hall Players (NQR), a program of the Carson City Symphony Association for adults who recently began to play - or returned to playing - string instruments, is looking for additional people who want a chance to play with a friendly, noncompetitive, welcoming ensemble.

NQR meets weekly, September to June, on Thursday mornings from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Carson City Senior Center, 911 Beverly Drive, under the direction of Symphony Education Director Sue Jesch and Associate Concertmaster Laura Gibson. Participants, ranging in age from mid-thirties to over eighty, develop skills in ensemble music playing and performance.

Laura Gibson, a coach for the group, said, "Some of our players have 'graduated' from NQR and now play with local community orchestras. This leaves openings for more violin, viola, cello, and bass players. NQR is a drop-in activity with no auditions and no fees, although donations are welcome. We even provide the sheet music!"

For more information about joining NQR, contact Sue Jesch at 775-450-5584 or sue@tahoefiddler.com. This free program is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts, and by private donations.
