Upcoming concerts and events
reNEW's Musical Sculpture Garden
Thursday, June 10 @ 6:00 | Wilbur D. May Arboretum, Rancho San Rafael
reNEW Music has connected eight of the most talented musicians in the Reno area with eight locally-connected composers to create brand-new, short pieces specifically for this event, which will be performed, at a safe and responsible distance, throughout the May Arboretum. As an interactive project, audience members will not only have the opportunity to hear the pieces, but will also be encouraged to speak with the performers and composers about their instrument, the collaborative process, and any other question that comes to mind.
New Works by: Mica Redden, Monica Houghton, Paul Novak, Tristan Selzler, Charles Taggert, Harry Gilbert, Jean-Paul Perrotte, and Brandon Sherman.
Performed by: Eileen Brownell, Jeff DePaoli, Jason Fromme, Lucie Zalesakova, Rose Sciaroni, Kevin Miescke, Aaron Hill, and Paul Fleming.

Reno Composers Workshop
This 6-month workshop provided the skills needed to start composing. Featuring educational seminars, one-on-one coaching sessions, and play-through sessions in which professional musicians collaboratively workshopped composers' pieces in real time, reNEW helped in the creation of half a dozen pieces by developing composers.
