I'm from Reno. Sometimes I miss it. Russ Dickman is the tubist with the Philharmonic and nearly everything else in towne...great guy and great player.
Not too far from Reno is Sacramento (2hrs) and the San Francisco Bay area (3.5 hrs)..lotsa players there. Another person you should get to know is David Bugli in Carson City.. he is a competent tubist and conducts a lot of pick-up orchestras. The Reno Munincipal Band is pretty mediocre...but it is fun and it pays.
