The Local Lens – Sounds of Summer

July 6, 2022 | Linda Offerdahl

My all-time favorite thing to do in the summer is to listen to music in an outdoor setting, even better if I can dance. July kicks off the summer music season in Incline Village. No matter where you go, whether it’s the beach or the Classical Tahoe Pavilion on the campus of UNR, formerly SNU, you are bound to find something you like.

The Shakespeare Festival at Sand Harbor is famous for its Monday concert series, the Mama Mia show this year and of course, this year’s production of Much Ado About Nothing. Founder Mike Chamberlain assures me that the picnic tables are back, along with food from Brimm’s Catering Co. Yum! The Reno Phil presents its annual Broadway concert on Monday, July 11. 

MUSIC ON THE BEACH…Incline Beach, every Wednesday and Friday next to the Barefoot Bar. This is VERY popular! Mr. Tahoe, our very own Darin Talbot plays on the Sierra Cloud Wednesday – Saturday on the 5pm cruise. Does it get any better than that? He’s everywhere this summer…the Hyatt, Glasses Wine Bar, and Fredrick’s too.


SNU is now UNR! Thank you to the transition team headed up by Dr. Jill Heaton and Sue Johnson. The University of Nevada Reno is committed to strong community engagement with plans to continue such events as the summer concert series by Classical Tahoe.


The Washoe Tahoe Housing Partnership is looking into the need for a shuttle for employees living in Carson City and Reno while working in Incline Village Crystal Bay. Please help us understand the current need by asking your employees to take the survey. If you are commuting to Incline for work, please take this very important survey before Friday  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YFPH7TC


Too numerous to mention, but you know who you are. Thank you! Pulling together to decorate the town and the parade route, decorating floats and cars to be in the parade, organizing events, and those who helped clean up and take down decor. It takes a Village!

I’m off to Minnesota for a couple of weeks! No SnapShot next week. The Local Lens will be back on July 27. Have a safe and ‘sound’ July, Incline Village/Crystal Bay.
