The TOCCATA – Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will kick off its 10th annual WinterFest with “Brrroque Masters” this week.

Performances of the program will take place in South Lake Tahoe on Sunday and Incline Village on Wednesday.

“The program opens with Vivaldi’s famous Concerto for Two Trumpets, featuring baroque trumpeters Dwyane Hollenbach and William van Meter, and the Tahoe Symphony Chorus will continue with Vivaldi’s Gloria,” according to a press release from TOCCATA. “Young artist, Nathaniel Reyes, will perform Vivaldi’s Bassoon Concerto in E minor, Guitarist Yuri Liberzon performs Vivaldi’s Concerto for Guitar in A major, and principal oboist, Nita Tune, will perform Marcello’s Concerto for Oboe and Strings in D minor.

“Vivaldi’s Gloria features Joy Strotz, Anna Helwing, and Maria Arrigotti, sopranos; with Stuart Duke and Chris Langton, baritones.”

TOCCATA will also perform the program in Carson City Jan. 9 and Reno on Jan. 11. Maestro James Rawie will conduct all performances.

The concert series is dedicated to the memory of Mark Lord, TOCCATA’s principal trumpet player for the past nine years.
