Executive Director's Message

Beth Macmillan

Happy Autumn!
We celebrated the most extraordinary July Festival this year and brought some of the best artists in the world to Reno.
As we watch the leaves turn colors and look and getting cozy indoors, we invite you to join us as we present our Fall Encore Series. 
Coming up on November 4, we will bring Paris to Reno at the Eldorado Showroom with Piaf! The Show.  This is the life journey of Edith Piaf who grew up a street urchin and became the most celebrated singer in France.  Last time we brought the show to Reno, one of the most special moments was the entire audience singing the chorus of La Vie En Rose. 
Our Holiday tradition of Pink Martini will continue December 7 at the Grand Theatre in the Grand Sierra Resort.  Bring your conga line shoes and join us for the happiest seasonal extravaganzas celebrating cultures and languages near and far. 
When Spring 2024 approaches, we will present the incredible Paul Taylor Dance Company from New York in February and the 5 Browns, a family of Julliard trained piano scholars as Artown and Steinway Gallery of Reno place 5 Steinway grand pianos on stage for an evening 50 fingers across the keys in April.  Both of these performances will take place at the Pioneer Center. 
See you in the lobby!
