Renowned pianist Joseph Kalichstein will open this year’s Lake Tahoe SummerFest classical music season, which runs July 31 through Aug. 16 in Incline Village.

Kalichstein has performed with some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic and the London Symphony.

Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5, the “Emperor Concerto,” will open Summerfest.

“The three weekend series of nine different concerts will transport audiences through masterpieces translated by renowned artists and a nationally acclaimed orchestra led by Joel Revzen, artistic director and conductor,” according to a press release for the concerts. “Many of the players hold principal positions in prestigious symphonies including the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, the philharmonics of New York and Los Angeles, and the symphonies of San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, and Vancouver. Friday and Sunday concerts include the 40 member orchestra, while Saturday performances feature an intimate ‘Meet the Music – Meet the Musicians’ chamber music series, featuring smaller ensembles from the orchestra followed by post-event receptions for attendees and artists to mingle.”

The Lake Tahoe SummerFest orchestra performs in a 500-seat acoustical tent pavilion on the campus of Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village.
