Since 2016, the Tahoe Chamber Music Society has made a priority of creating educational opportunities for the young musicians in the Washoe County Schools. We have conducted master classes with violinist Yuki Numata Resnick, founder of Buffalo String Works, violinist Justin Bruns, Associate Concertmaster of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and in the summer of 2021 we hosted a master class with percussionist Lynn Vartan. We have hosted a weekend long cello workshop with guest instructors Katharine Knight and Zachary Sweet, and in the spring of 2018, we held an audition workshop for students who were planning to audition for the Reno Philharmonic youth orchestras.
In June of 2022, we conducted a String Quartet Workshop with Justin Bruns, Ruth Lenz, Dustin Budish and Eileen Brownell. During the 2023 season we will again be conducting a chamber music workshop supported by a grant from the Nevada Arts Council. Details will be available soon.
It is our goal to continue to offer opportunities for the young musicians of Northern Nevada to benefit from the educational influence of our guest artists.
