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.

An Evening of Music and Dessert with Latin Tres
Sunday, July 9, 2017

The Carson City Symphony Association presents an elegant evening of music, wine, and dessert on Sunday, July 9, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at a private home, 2662 Danielle Drive in Carson City. The house recital features Latin Tres - Vanessa Porter, violin; Marina Rosznitovsky Oster, harp; and Alejandro Pinzón, bandoneon - performing new arrangements of traditional Latin American music.

Tickets are $25 and are available online at CCSymphony.com (see link below), at the Nevada Day office in the Carson City Visitors Bureau (716 N. Carson St.), or by calling the Symphony at 775-883-4154 for reservations.

Pinzón said, "The violin and the harp have strong ties to Classical Western music and are seen together in recitals, as part of big orchestras, and in Latin American music. On the other hand, the bandoneon (an accordion-like instrument), the emblematic instrument of Argentine tango, is seldom seen outside of that environment. We decided to put together this rarely seen ensemble. The audience will get to appreciate the beauty of the instruments and the music in a unique and novel way."

A versatile musician, Vanessa Porter combines years of formal classical training, charisma, and artistic fluidity, transitioning from Classical and folk repertoires to fiddling and improvisation. Oster has performed with professional orchestras in the U.S., South America, Europe, and the Middle East and teaches harp at the University of Nevada, Reno. Pinzón loves to share his passion for Argentine tango with the world. A tango dancer, bandoneon and violin player, conductor, and photographer, he first encountered tango in the early 2000s and says his addiction to it keeps growing!

This recital is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
