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.

I attended after a neighbor mentioned that this event was happening. I am really glad I did! The combination of Chinese folk music, played on Chinese instruments, with the beautiful music of the Reno Pops Orchestra was very wonderful and the music itself was superb! I will make it a point to attend any future events of a similar nature. Thank you!

Wonderful director and orchestra. In my opinion, it would enhance the audience experience if the director would explain about the next piece to be performed and about its author.
