in community we trust
This November, we applaud and acknowledge the individuals and community partners who support Classical Tahoe Festival & Music Institute

The Classical Tahoe Music Institute, inaugurated in 2018, offers more than twenty music education and appreciation programs and events for the community and audience members, of all ages and abilities, to engage with music and musicians during the three-week summer festival. 

In 2019, the Music Institute served 656 participants through classes and workshops for a total of 102 hours of music education - with the help of thirteen partner organizations and collaborations. 
Join us in thanking The Women & Children's Center of the Sierra and Note-Able Music Therapy Services

Classical Tahoe partnered with two extraordinary organizations in 2019, The Women & Children's Center of the Sierra and Note-Able Music Therapy Services, to provide music therapy for trauma survivors. 

The music therapy program, designed to increase family bonding, provided three refugee families with six weeks of experiential music therapy from Note-Able Music Therapy Services. The Women & Children’s Center of the Sierra (WACCS) were additionally supported through the purchase of small percussion instruments to be enjoyed by their clients. 

"The 6-week program for refugees was incredibly special. WACCS has been working with refugees for at least 4 years. Some families are doing ok, some families are struggling, and some families are bereft of joy. The families which participated in the program were given an opportunity to experience joy on such a meaningful level. One mom and her children were enthralled with music and playing instruments. They were able to leave behind the everyday cares and simply enjoy each other and the music. Regardless of how mom and kids were feeling when they would arrive for class, they would leave with smiles of gratitude. It literally was miraculous." - Pam Russell, WACC Executive Director.

Family clients from both organizations were provided transportation from Reno to enjoy the annual Family Orchestra Concert & Music Maker Faire. Classical Tahoe staff and board had the opportunity to welcome the group to the Pavilion and courtyard. The children were introduced to the concert pianist: 14-year-old Angel Wang, and bagged lunches for the families were provided by Board Chair, Marna Broida. The day ended with ice cream, pictures with Classical Tahoe Orchestra musicians and an exchange of art projects made at the Music Maker Faire. 

The Music Institute initiative for music education, appreciation, and community performances is made possible with generous support from the M.E.G Memorial Fund for Creative Arts.

Sharing a good experience with another human deepens our enjoyment of the moment... but only if we abide by certain rules. Dr Laurie Santos shows us how we often get 'sharing' wrong and explains how we can all derive more happiness from ice cream, sunsets and a night in front of the TV.
