Las Vegas Philharmonic opening-night concert

The Las Vegas Philharmonic kicked off its 20th Anniversary Season on Sept. 15 with an opening-night performance celebrating the orchestra’s milestone along with Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday.

The program featured Bernstein favorites including Overture to Candide and Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.

Guest pianist Joyce Yang brought the house to its feet with her exquisite performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Following the concert, an onstage reception with champagne, wine and specialty cupcakes was enjoyed by patrons and musicians — toasting to 20 years of music making and the start of an artistically diverse and celebratory season for the Philharmonic.
