Special Projects

The mission of the Reno Phil is to produce inspirational symphonic performances of the highest quality for diverse audiences and support exceptional education, outreach, and engagement programs.

The Reno Phil’s Strategic Plan serves as a coherent foundation and a spirited catalyst toward attaining strategic success that will enable the Phil to fulfill its mission and reach bold new levels of orchestral success in alignment with its vision. In this plan, the RPA identified several key projects that will enrich the community, the region, and ultimately achieve national significance. We encourage donors and funders to join us in making these projects a reality.

Major funding opportunities are available for those who believe strongly in the power of music to transform a region both culturally and economically. Each special project brings its own unique way of achieving national recognition and instilling a sense of pride in our own community. By investing in the arts, you will be enhancing the quality of life and contributing to the economic well-being of our region.


The Composer-in-Residence project will commission new works by up and coming composers to be premiered by the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra. When appropriate, partnerships will be established with other arts organizations to enhance the benefits to the community. These projects typically have an education component with workshops and programs in the local schools.
