The Carson City Symphony, conducted by David Bugli, will be joined by tenor Albert Rudolf Lee for “Spring Dreams,” a concert at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 24 at the Carson City Community Center’s Bob Boldrick Theater, 851 E. William St.

Having completed the Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance at the University of Connecticut and the Master of Music at The Juilliard School, Lee recently completed the Doctor of Music degree at Florida State University and is in his first year on the voice faculty of the University of Nevada, Reno. In Sunday’s program, he will sing two arias with the orchestra: Misero! O sogno, o son desto?, a dramatic concert aria by Mozart, and “Una furtiva lagrima” from the opera L’elisir d’amore by Donizetti.

The program also includes Strauss’ “Voice of Spring” Waltz, directed by guest conductor Timothy Reynolds, and Rossini’s La Gazza Ladra (The Thieving Magpie) Overture.

STRAZZ, Carson City Symphony’s advanced youth string ensemble, will join the orchestra for the performance of Schumann’s Symphony No. 1, (Spring).

Tickets are $15 for general admission; $12 for seniors, students, and Symphony Association members; and free for youth ages 18 and under. Tickets are on sale at the Carson City Visitors Bureau, 716 N. Carson St., and online at CCSymphony.com; or at the door.

Pre-show entertainment begins at 3 p.m. in the lobby, and a free concert preview begins at 3:15 in the Sierra Room.

The preview, hosted by conductor David Bugli, will include discussions with Albert Lee and Timothy Reynolds about the concert, composers, and music.

A dinner reception at Living the Good Life, 1480 N. Carson St., follows the concert. For reservations, required in advance, call the Symphony at 775-883-4154.

Spring Dreams 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. The concert preview is supported by a grant from Nevada Humanities.
