Tahoe Symphony returns to Gardnerville
Tahoe Symphony Orchestra’s 13th SummerFest returns to Gardnerville 7 p.m. Friday with Romantix at Carson Valley United Methodist Church, 1375 Centerville Lane.
Reno Philharmonic Principal Cellist Peter Lenz will perform the Dvorak “Cello Concerto in B Minor.” The orchestra also digs into Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 1,” and offers up Rossini’s “Overture to the Barber of Seville.”
A Reno native, Lenz began his professional cello career at age 13; he has been principal cellist of the Reno Philharmonic since 1982, and of the Reno Chamber Orchestra since 1983. He has also shared the stage with such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Frank Sinatra, Loretta Lynn, and Itzhak Perlman. As a soloist, Peter has performed with numerous regional orchestras, as well as in Reno.
Lenz holds a masters degree in mining engineering from UNR and is a senior research scientist with EP Minerals.
