The Carson City Symphony will begin rehearsals for the 2014-15 concert season on Wednesday, Aug. 27 from 7 to 9:15 p.m. at the Carson High School band room.
The Symphony, conducted by David Bugli, is a volunteer orchestra of about 55 players who perform music from the 15th to 21st centuries. It’s open to string players at any time without audition, and to other instrumentalists when positions are available. Current openings are for strings and horn. Musicians who are interested in joining should contact the Symphony at 775-883-4154.
The 2014-15 season includes six concerts, all featuring guest soloists or groups. The opening concert, “A Nevada 150 Concert,” is a signature event of the sesquicentennial year. It features the Symphony, Carson City Symphony Chorus, and several guest narrators, and is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 26 at 4 p.m. at the Carson City Community Center, with a preview beginning at 3:15 p.m. Additional concerts will be on Dec. 14, March 1, April 26, a Sunday in June, and July 4.
