Las Vegas Philharmonic: Oktoberfest

  • The Smith Center 361 Symphony Park Avenue Las Vegas, NV, 89106 United States (map)

Fellow Las Vegans and Music Lovers,

Our greatest musical citizen of the world, Leonard Bernstein, once said, “This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.”

Music heals, and in response to the tragic events of October 1st, we are changing the program for our October 14th concert to honor and reflect upon what makes us stronger when we face the future together. We will now perform a program of works by Barber, Beethoven & Mozart that pays tribute to our citizens and their resilience.

We invite all First Responders from the city’s police, fire and EMS services, and hospitals, or anyone who seeks the refuge and solace of music, to attend the concert at no charge. These tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and supplies are limited. Tickets can be reserved at the Box Office, online or by calling 702-749-2000 and using the redemption code LVPHPM. Limit 4 tickets per person. Read more in our Press Release.

Ticketing and further information can be found at www.LVPhil.org.
