The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes Jeffrey Kahane as guest conductor for the Classix Four concert set. Also a pianist, Kahane will conduct the orchestra from the piano for Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466, a rare opportunity and welcome challenge for both the orchestra and conductor, offering an exciting new flavor to the audience. The second half of the concert will open with nocturne and scherzo of Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, followed by the composer’s Symphony No. 5. In D major, op. 107 “Reformation.”
