Tahoe Concert Star Tours with Accent Nevada


Join Northstar California, Tahoe Star Tours and Accent Nevada for three enchanting nights of star gazing, poetry and music!  Accent Nevada, a Reno based string quartet, is the perfect accompaniment to a spectacular night under the Tahoe skies. 

Guests will begin their adventures by leaving the Village at Northstar and riding up the scenic Highlands Gondola to the Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe.  You can warm up in Constellation Residences at Northstar lobby with some hot chocolate while you meet your Star Guide, Tony Berendsen.  He will guide you to the Butterfly Lounge of the Ritz-Carlton to listen to the sweet sounds of Accent Nevada.  Following the concert portion, guests will make their way to the Ritz-Carlton Terrace for the spectacular star gazing under the dark skies.  Star Guide Tony will help you explore the sky above with the help of a lively science-based talk about the cosmos, a laser tour and top of the line computerized Celestron telescopes, all while sipping on wine and coffee.  At the conclusion of the tour, a bus will pick you up and drop you off back at your starting point in the Village at Northstar.    


About Accent Nevada

Accent is a Reno-based chamber music ensemble comprised of highly-trained local artists. Each member is a professionally-trained musician, possessing a masters-level degree or higher in music performance. Collectively, they have played in a multitude of musical settings and venues ranging from the stages of the Silver Legacy accompanying contemporary artists such as the Moody Blues, Yes, ELO, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra to the most austere of stages with singers from the Metropolitan Opera. Their collective experience encompasses the classical, jazz and rock genres, and is continually growing to include more styles.

Tips For Enjoying Your Adventure

  • A light sweater or jacket is suggested. The temperatures drop at night in the Sierra’s so we want you to be prepared.
  • Due to the group size please refrain from bringing your own telescopes. We'll have three telescopes for participants to use, including the Celestron Sky Prodigy 6 robotic telescope, and Ipad wireless telescope operation using the SkyQ to get a great view of the night sky!
  • Guests with disabilities will need special arrangements. Contact Amber Whitman, Special Events Manager, at 530.448.1513 to make plans in advance. We will have alternate routes for you to get to mid-mountain comfortably but only on an as-needed basis.

*Subject to cancellation due to weather.
