Las Vegas Philharmonic prepares for opening night


The Las Vegas Philharmonic celebrates its 20th anniversary this season. They’ll have 13 performances.

Opening night is in mid-September.

This year’s music selection is expected to be electrifying with a dose of horror in October. A full showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho will be accompanied by a live orchestra. 

The Las Vegas Philharmonic plays at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts, in downtown Las Vegas. 

The orchestra,  reaching the milestone of 20 years.

And as they build their line-up season after season, musical director and conductor Donato Cabrera says it’s like putting puzzle pieces together.

They revive masterpieces they’ve played in the past. They scout for musical guests and really, look for things that resonate with people.

“It is transformative. You can sit there and you can travel the world without leaving your seat and it’s something anyone can enjoy, you just have to get yourself down there,” Cabrera said.

Tickets went live Thursday morning. They start at $30 at The Smith Center box office.
