Church Fine Arts

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.

The concert was brilliant. I wish the lecture on Bach's musical purpose with the Goldberg had had the chance to better illustrtate these principlas with A LIGHT POINTER. i COULD' NT FOLLOW HER EXPLANATIONS WELL ENOUGH WITH JUST HER SPEAKING AND PLAYING AND DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO LOOK ON THE SCORE SHE WAS EXPLANING ABOUT.

The most amazing experience. 15 harps playing together. A "life memory". Thank you so much to all who made this possible! And so affordable too for some of us on limited budgets!

This was the best concert I have attended in Reno. I've lived in Nevada for 17 years. The sound production was excellent.

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.

Take the next step...
