The Reno Chamber Orchestra was created in 1974 by founding Music Director and Conductor Emeritus Vahe Khochayan in collaboration with several musician colleagues. In its 41 years, under the leadership of Khochayan and current Music Director Theodore Kuchar — the most recorded conductor of his generation — the Orchestra has continued to grow. Some of the world’s most famous performers have appeared with the RCO, including Leonard Nimoy, Itzhak Perlman, Edgar Meyer, James Buswell, Berlin Philharmonic concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley, and many more. The RCO produces both a regular concert season (September – April) and the annual Nevada Chamber Music Festival in December.
