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.
Carson City Symphony - Sweelinck "Hodie Christus natus est" Project (2020)
Welcome to the Sweelinck "Hodie Christus natus est" Project Page
Updated: Dec. 1, 2020
Some background, by David Bugli

1562 to 1621. His musical style reflects the end of the Renaissance and the beginning of the
Baroque era. In addition to being a choral composer, he was a major influence on the development
of the north German keyboard (organ) style. His fame was such that he was the only non-English composer
whose works appeared in the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book, a highly influential volume among
