    Truckee Tahoe Community Chorus will perform THE TRUCKEE HISTORICAL REVUE at Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City, NV on Sunday 9-5-21. The Road Show recreates the original production from May 2019 that traces the history of Truckee and surrounding areas, beginning with Native American days and culminating with the 1960 Olympics at Squaw Valley. It recounts truths about the Gold Rush, Silver Boom, Railroad Building, Boca Beer, Chinese and Irish immigrants, and Legends, including the Donner Party, performed by some 50 participants in period attire, accompanied by local musicians and a video collection of historic photographs.
    Revue stories and music were composed by Truckee Local David Wendell Nelson, with additional songs by Richard Blair, who will debut his new song “Ode to Virginia City”. McAvoy Layne will narrate the show as Mark Twain. Also appearing with TTCC and Richard Blair are the barbershop group OK Chorale, and guest singers Owen Lee and Andy Zeng. TTCC Artistic Director Susan K Horst will conduct the performers.
    Two shows will be presented at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm. Tickets are $30 general admission and $45 limited reserve, and go on sale on Monday 7-19-21 at and at the door – if not sold out.
