What year did you join the orchestra?
How long have you been playing music?
How did you pick your instrument?
I wanted to be just like my dad, cellist and principal horn, John Lenz.
Musician, teacher, and Law Enforcement Officer.
When you’re not playing with the Reno Phil, what would we most likely see you doing in your free time?
Working at my parents ranch, exploring Nevada with my family, or tinkering with motorized things.
What genre of music are you most excited to play?
Neo-classical, post-romantic music… think Shostakovich 10. Although I supposed I get very excited to play Brahms as well, and he was very much Romantic. So, I am most excited for anything with a good cello part, because that means the audience is going to like it.
