Chase International luxury agents and their clients recently gathered for a sold-out performance by the legendary jazz vocalist, Kurt Elling. Accompanied by the 18-piece Reno Jazz Orchestra, under a starry Lake Tahoe sky, Elling delivered a spectacular show.
A private party for major supporters.
The evening began with a reception at the Ramada, a pavilion at Sand Harbor set aside for private parties. Chase International sponsored the event, providing an array of gourmet appetizers along with our signature mocktail, the Luxury Lavender Lemonade.
Guests and organizers alike enjoyed a perfect summer evening with friends and colleagues at beautiful Sand Harbor along the water’s edge.
“Might I just say, I have been to a lot of parties at the Ramada, and yours blew everybody out of the water. I’ve never been to a nicer affair there. Well done to you and your team, unbelievably fantastic!” — Julie Rauchle
An astounding performance by Kurt Elling.
Grammy award-winning Elling doesn’t usually perform with big bands, which made this performance a particularly unique treat for the audience. His stylings and wit appealed to the full range of music lovers, his storytelling and virtuoso a delight to behold.
“I was drawn to Elling’s music because it does not recognize boundaries,” said Chuck Reider, Music Director of the Reno Jazz Orchestra. “He embraces American music and culture. Something the great Duke Ellington expressed in the phrase, ‘There are only two kinds of music. The good kind…. and the other kind.'”
Bringing the best jazz to Reno-Tahoe.
The motivation behind the Reno Jazz Orchestra is the desire to create good music in the grand tradition of the jazz big band stage performance. It’s a motivation based upon the simple love of that magnificent sound and the rush and wonder of playing 18 pieces to a packed house.
The organization aims to perpetuate an appreciation for jazz music and jazz history. They hope that from their artistic and educational efforts comes musical inspiration that leads to continual generations of accomplished local musicians making everyone happy with their smooth sounds.
An event to remember.
A truly spectacular evening for all, we thank the Reno Jazz Orchestra for putting this magical program together. And we appreciate our luxury agents and clients who helped support local arts by attending this one-of-a-kind event.
