Education

Introduction



The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra is an award-winning orchestra, and is the area’s largest performing arts group, entertaining more than 32,000 people each year. The group’s innovative and world-class concerts are well known to the communities of northern Nevada and northeastern California, yet most people are unaware of the Reno Phil’s tremendous education and outreach programs.

Over the course of the past decade, the Reno Phil has provided music education, enrichment and exposure to thousands of Washoe County and greater Truckee Meadows region school children. As federal funds for music education in public schools continues to decrease and more attention is placed on academic testing, the RPA is committed to growing and enhancing its programs in order to give all children the access to the music education they deserve and need.
