Tahoe Symphony performs Dec. 29 in Genoa

Staff Reports

The Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will perform a New Year’s Eve concert 4 p.m. Dec. 29 in the Genoa Lakes Golf Club Ballroom.

The symphony will be performing traditional Strauss waltzes, tangos and polkas so celebrants will be able to dance.

“You won’t want to miss ‘Tales from the Genoa Woods,’ conducted by the winner of our baton auction,” Susan Cross Stanley said. “You’ll go on a ‘Sleigh Ride’ with Leroy Anderson and a wild horseback ride with ‘William Tell.’”

The orchestra will perform Broadway tunes and opera arias from regulars baritone Stuart Duke, mezzo soprano Liudmila Mullin, soprano Anne Davidson and tenor Robert Bousquet.

“For a special treat, guest artist and professional opera singer Jamie Bonetto joins us for an aria by Offenbach,” Cross Stanley said. “We close the concert with the rollicing ensemble number from Verdi’s ‘La Traviata,’ ‘Let’s Drink from the Joyful Cups.’”
