Lake Tahoe Music Camp

Absolute Music is a proud sponsor of the Lake Tahoe Music Camp. Absolute Music awards several scholarships to this amazing camp every year. Absolute Music also resides at the camp to offer emergency repair and supplies to the students and staff who are enjoying this incredible music camp experience.
The Lake Tahoe Music Camp is a weeklong summer camp for band students completing the 7th through 12th grade. LTMC offers concert bands, jazz bands, chamber ensembles, music classes, and its own private beach on Lake Tahoe. Boasting a full and well-qualified staff, LTMC gives students the opportunity to work with instructors one-on-one, in section rehearsals and in full band rehearsals.
In their free time every afternoon, students can play basketball, volleyball, ping pong, swim in the lake, canoe, kayak, or just take a nap in their cabin. Students also get the special experience of viewing the South Lake Tahoe Fourth of July Fireworks from the private beach - it is incredible! Students are housed in cabins with other children their age and gender.
The camp week concludes with a final concert for parents and friends before students are picked up to go home. Many students return year after year because of LTMC's special fun atmosphere and access to quality musical experiences. We hope you join us this summer.

Reno Jazz Festival

Absolute Music is proud to sponsor the largest music event in northern Nevada – the amazing Reno Jazz Festival. Absolute Music is on the scene with two large displays of musical instruments and accessories, as well as a free emergency musical instrument repair service to the amazing musicians attending this great event. Absolute Music also offers large instrument rentals to visiting ensembles that cannot transport their own instruments. These large instrument rentals include String Basses, Vibraphones, and more.

Since 1962, the Reno Jazz Festival has drawn jazz students, instructors, fans, and professional performers to Reno to play, listen, and learn. The festival has featured a wide range of Jazz over the years… from solo performers to large ensembles, from the most straight-ahead to the furthest reaches of the avant-garde. The festival offers public performances by world- renowned musicians from across North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. Our guest artists represent some of the most creative and celebrated musicians in jazz history. This year will be no different as the festival presents some of the top names in jazz.

The 2023 Festival is better than ever. And it is all in-person. We are celebrating 61 years with an incredible lineup of jazz artists and artist educators—and, offering a richer, deeper and more diverse educational and artistic experience for participants—devoted to educating and inspiring the next generation of jazz musicians. We continue to strive to ensure that every guest participant leaves with greater knowledge, appreciation, and love of music and the world of jazz. The Reno Jazz Festival is a massive undertaking, and it would not be possible without help from all of our co-sponsors and volunteers. Special thanks to the National Endowment for the Arts, Nevada Arts Council, City of Reno, Absolute Music, and to our own University of Nevada, Reno for its unfailing support over the past three decades, especially from the School of the Arts and College of Liberal Arts. Thanks must also be given to all of the tireless music educators who have chosen to go above and beyond the call of duty each and every year to fundraise and organize a trip for their students to attend the Reno Jazz Festival! We are so fortunate in that we get to see and hear some of the very best student musicians each year. We cannot thank you enough for your loyalty to the Reno Jazz Festival and for your commitment to music education all over Reno.
