Critical Acclaim

“The recent arrival of 2015 was celebrated and confirmed by the Las Vegas Philharmonic on Saturday as the orchestra welcomed not one but two outstanding guest artists to share the stage in The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall. Both conductor Rei Hotoda and violinist Bella Hristova left indelible marks on the audience through their artful musicianship and technical mastery.”
