March Forward for Suicide Awareness 5K Walk - March 25

Palo Verde High School International Baccalaureate students take lead in planning event to bring awareness to topic of suicide awareness

WHAT: International Baccalaureate (IB) students at Palo Verde High School will host a community walk on March 25 to raise awareness about suicide and suicide prevention. The students, who are working with school administration and community supporters to execute the event, have a personal connection to the issue. One of the IB students, Simran Sodhi, is the sibling of a teen who committed suicide last year. And a student at neighboring Sig Rogich Middle School also committed suicide last year, motivating this group of students to take action.

“Our goal is simple,” said Sodhi. “We want to educate our school communities and the community at large that there are options and resources to help people who are contemplating suicide. While the issue of suicide is sensitive and difficult to discuss, we can’t sit idly by and let this continue to happen. We want our fellow students and the general public to know there are a number of resources and professional services available to anyone thinking about ending their life. This is a walk of hope.”

In addition to the Walk, the March for Suicide Awareness will include remarks from mental health professionals along with information on available resources.

WHEN: Saturday, March 25
Registration opens at 9 a.m.
Walk begins at 10 a.m.

JENNIFER BELLOR 898 Hildegard - Premiere

SCHUMANN Overture, Scherzo and Finale, Opus 52

BRAHMS A German Requiem, Opus 45

EVOCATIVE, POETIC AND LIFE-AFFIRMING, this powerful program begins with the premiere of Las Vegas resident Jennifer Bellor’s 898 Hildegard, a piece for orchestra and chorus that intertwines excerpts from the medieval composer Hildegard von Bingen’s chants “O Vis Eternitatis” and “O Gloriosissimi Lux Vivens Angeli.” Robert Schumann attained the elusive union of music and poetry, an ultimate goal of the Romantic era artist. His music abounds with quick mood changes, tumult, profound statements, and touching delicacy, all of which is found in the Overture, Scherzo and Finale. Championed by Schumann, Johannes Brahms’ immensely popular German Requiem is a consoling and comforting piece, providing solace to all that hear and perform it. The Las Vegas Master Singers, UNLV Concert Singers & Chamber Chorale, along with soloists Alisa Jordheim and Will Liverman join forces with your symphony orchestra to deliver a stirring performance.

26th Annual Chefs for Kids Gala - Saturday, May 13

Pixies and pirates across the valley will soon gather for a night of food, fun, and philanthropy during the 26th Annual Chefs for Kids Gala at South Point Hotel, Casino, and Spa. The black-tie optional gala with a Neverland theme supports the nonprofit's mission to alleviate malnutrition and hunger in children through education and awareness.

“For children, Neverland is a magical place where anything is possible, and that’s the spirit we want to evoke during the 26th Annual Chefs for Kids Gala,” said Chef Christopher Johns, Chairman of Chefs for Kids. “Fly away with us and together we can continue on this awfully big adventure providing nutrition education and a warm breakfast for children in southern Nevada.”

The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and silent auction followed by a gourmet dinner, raffle and live auction beginning at 7 p.m. Guests will then dance the night away with the renowned band Harbor Lights, performing everything from high-energy modern Top 40 hits like Katy Perry’s “California Girls” and Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face,” to Motown hits such as the Temptations “My Girl” and Aretha Franklin’s “Respect.”

During the event, Chefs for Kids will present individual and corporate awards to Michael Severino and The Binion Family Foundation. Severino will receive the Legacy Award for his steadfast support of Chefs for Kids throughout the years. The Binion Family Foundation will receive the Corporate Award for their longstanding commitment to supporting Chefs for Kids programs including Healthy Eating, Cookin’ Up Breakfast, Operation Thanksgiving, and more.

Tickets are $195 per person, $1,850 for a table of 10 and $1560 for a table of 8. To purchase tickets, visit, or email with additional questions.

Cabrera Conducts Bruckner - May 27, 2017

SATURDAY, May 27, 2017 – 7:30pm

Pre-concert conversation at 6:30pm in Reynolds Hall

Donato Cabrera, conductor Liam Boisset, oboe

MOZART Overture to Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute), K620

STRAUSS, R. Concerto for Oboe and Small Orchestra

BRUCKNER Symphony No. 6

THEATRICS AND DARING abound in this hearty program featuring an overture from Wolfgang Amadeus’ last opera, Richard Strauss’s only concerto for oboe and Anton Bruckner’s awe-inspiring sixth symphony. The overture to Mozart’s final opera, The Magic Flute, opens the performance with dramatic flair. Rising star, Liam Boisset will make his debut playing Richard Strauss’s autumnal, Oboe Concerto, famously inspired by conversations between the aging composer and a young U.S. soldier, an oboist, at the end of WWII. The evening concludes with Anton Bruckner’s magisterial Symphony No. 6, one of the only symphonies that remained unchanged by the composer. This glorious symphony is a poignant way to finish our 18th season - the 1899 premiere was conducted by none other than Gustav Mahler, who was in the midst of composing his Symphony No. 4 at the same time.
