Evening activities include faculty and student recitals, clinics and performances by the University of Nevada, Reno music faculty and a variety of recreational and team-building activities. Students will receive small group instruction and optional private lessons from outstanding northern Nevada music educators and they will perform in ensembles under the direction of some of the finest music educators in the country.
