The Church Fine Arts Complex, opened in 1962, houses the Departments of Music, Art, Speech Communication and Theater, and is home to the Nevada Repertory Company, Nightingale Concert Hall and the Sheppard Contemporary gallery.
James Edward Church was professor of Latin, German, classical art and history at the University of Nevada, Reno from 1892-1959. Church's development of the first snow surveying techniques and a system of analyzing avalanche hazards brought recognition to the school and the state.
Each spring, Church Fine Arts plays host to one of the University's most successful outreach efforts, the Reno Jazz Festival, attracting thousands of participants from high schools and universities from throughout the region.
Inspirational and Informative. Thank you to UNR and supporters. This event transformed my hope for the future and gratitude to the wise, caring, and compassionate developing community of Reno. Thank you
I loved the lecture. I was disheartened that UNR decided late in the game to require tickets and those of us who share Klien's values and who had registered on UNR's website well in advance were not notified. For example the woman who Klein singled out at the end of her lecture as having helped her prepare for that very lecture had to scramble at the last minute with others of us in the lobby struggling to find tickets. Poor form UNR. Meanwhile they reserved the best seats in the house for elite faculty who probably hadn't even read the book or unlikely even care about the subject. This is old school and indicates poor customer service on the part of the university. Naomi Klein made a significant point about the NSHE system divesting from fossil fuels. I certainly hope her message was heard by the prestigious faculty and regents sitting in all those prime seats. You will soon hear more about this issue on campus. #DIVEST #KEEPITINTHEGROUND.
Naomi Klein was fantastic! If only more people could listen to her!
The only problem with the whole experience was the mix up about reserving a seat. I thought I had done so through this site, only to find out at the door that I had to be put on a waiting list. I had responded weeks ahead, thinking all was well. This site needs to make it clear that indicating one's plans to be at an event here do not guarantee a seat, even with long lead time, and that attendees must also contact Lawlor for reserved tickets.
Naomi didn't disappoint! She spoke passionately and eloquently about the major issues we face moving forward. Would have liked a much longer Q&A at the end. Next time
Lovely. Beautiful. So glad that I had the opportunity to attend.
Flute Day was a wonderful event. The master classes and clinics were fantastic, and the Guest Artist Recital with Ai Goldsmith was inspiring. Another outstanding Music Department Event!
What a wonderful show for the whole family! The music, the staging, the acting, the singing and the dancing was so well done and energetic. The set was nicely done and worked so smoothly with the story. I highly recommend seeing this musical before it ends as you will not regret the experience.
