Performances & Concerts


Opening its 46th season, the Classix six-concert series is the keystone of our performance schedule. The Classix concert sets are performed from September to April on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday evenings at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts in Reno, Nevada. Prior to each concert, music director Laura Jackson presents a concert Preview, an informative discussion of the evening’s program that is extremely popular with our patrons.

  • Sunday performance at 4:00 PM
  • Doors open at 2:30 PM
  • Concert Preview is at 3:00 PM in the main hall
  • Tuesday performance at 7:30 PM
  • Doors open at 6:30 PM
  • Concert Preview is at 7:00 PM in the exhibition hall in the lower lobby

Spirit of the Season

This classic holiday celebration features the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra and Dr. Jason Altieri, Conductor, along with special guest vocalist LaKisha Jones, the Reno Philharmonic Chorus, Tintabulations Handbell Ensemble, Billinghurst Middle School Jazz Choir, Damonte Ranch H.S. Percussion, Santa Tappers and Santa Claus. Due to the ever-increasing popularity of this show – underscored by last season’s SOLD OUT shows – a third showing on Saturday night has been added to the schedule.

Family Concert

Grab the kids and join us for some musical fun. The Reno Phil is committed to audience members no matter their height. This free concert is a perfect way to introduce young audiences to the orchestra. Don’t forget to come early for fun, hands-on pre-concert activities!

Special Events

We love a good party and we throw the best of them. Join us for a good time and support the Phil while you’re at it.

Summer Concerts

When the weather warms up, so do we! The summer brings such classic concerts like Pops on the River, Broadway on the Beach, Pops at the Ranch and 4th of July celebrations. Join us for some summer fun at these perennial favorites!
