Symphony comes to Carson City

Reno brother musicians John and Peter Lenz will combine their talents in a performance of contemporary composer David Ott's "Concerto for Two Cellos" with the Carson City Symphony Sunday at 4 p.m. at the Carson City Community Center.

Conductor and Music Director David Bugli will lead the symphony in Gioacchino Rossini's "Semiramid," and in Ludwig Beethoven's "Symphony No. 7."

John Lenz is professor of horn, cello and music theory at the University of Nevada, Reno and is principal cellist with the Telluride Chamber Players and plays with the Argenta Trio. He holds music degrees from UNR and the New England Conservatory of Music.

Peter Lenz is principle cellist with the Reno Philharmonic and Reno Chamber orchestras. He is a mining engineer with a degree in both engineering and music from UNR. John was his brother's cello teacher.

The concert is funded in part by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Admission to the concert is $12 ($10 for Carson City Chamber Orchestra Association members, students and senior citizens) and free for children ages 16 and under. Tickets are available at the door or in advance from the Brewery Arts Center in Carson City.
