This event is now sold out: Come join TTCC and a cast of dozens as we present an original musical extravaganza about the history of Truckee!
Music and narration for the Truckee Historical Revue was composed by David Wendell Nelson and will be conducted by Susan K Horst. The presentation will encompass the history of Truckee and surrounding areas beginning with Native American days and culminating with the 1960s Olympics in Squaw Valley, and will include stories and songs about the Gold Rush, railroad building, Boca Beer, personalities and legends, Chinese and Irish immigrants, the Donner party, modern day tourism and more.
The production will be filled with 120 talented local and guest singers, dancers, and musicians in period attire, including TTCC, the OK Chorale, the Diablo Valley College Philharmonic Orchestra, a Washoe singer, Chinese singers, music by Richard Blair, Inner Rhythms dancers, and specialty musicians. McAvoy Lane will narrate as Mark Twain and historic photos in a video presentation will accompany the show. A pre-show of Americana folk tunes will be performed by the Truckee Tahoe Youth Chorus. Prop firearms may be present at the show.
