Real genius

The Reno Philharmonic Orchestra touts the talents of two young women this weekend at the fourth MasterClassics concert of the season. The RPO will present Athena Adamopoulos’ Adamopoulos Theme and Dance of the Regiment. The 18-year-old composer was named a Davidson Fellow in 2004 by the Davidson Institute for Talent Development, a national non-profit foundation based in Reno that supports “profoundly gifted” young people. Adamopoulos received a $25,000 scholarship from the foundation and is now attending Harvard University. The RPO will also feature 12-year-old violinist Harriet Langley (pictured), who will make her professional debut performing Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1. The MasterClassics 4 program will include Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Performances are 4 p.m. Jan. 22 and 7:30 p.m. Jan. 24 at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts, 100 S. Virginia St. Tickets are $24-$58. Call 323-6393.
