Music from Beethoven, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Strauss and Wagner will close the final weekend of Lake Tahoe SummerFest in Incline Village Friday through Sunday.

The finale features acclaimed guest conductor Paul Watkins and New York Metropolitan Opera Orchestra principal oboist Nathan Hughes.

Friday and Sunday concerts include the 40-member orchestra, while Saturday performances feature an intimate “Meet the Music ­— Meet the Musicians” chamber music performance featuring smaller ensembles from the orchestra.

“Heroic Journey,” featuring great works by larger-than-life composers filled with tender surprises, proud survivors and crowning achievements is the theme of Friday’s performance, according to a press release from organizers. Saturday’s 7:15 p.m. chamber music performance, “White Nights, Golden Moons,” is in the theme of the mystical spirit of a Baltic summer, featuring two of the giants of Russian music — Rimsky-Korsakov and Tchaikovsky. Themed “The Danube-Baltic Express,” the final Sunday concert of the SummerFest 2015 season is a tour of music greats from Vienna, Austria and Russia.

Now in its fourth season, the Lake Tahoe SummerFest orchestra performs in the 500-seat JetBlue Festival Pavilion on the campus of Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village.

Tickets are $85 (Friday and Sunday) and $65 (Saturday) for adults, $15 for children 15 and under and $20 for students.
