Experience the Unexpected!

Experience arts and culture at Great Basin College with ACE!


The mission of the Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) Committee is to organize programs and events that expose our communities to new experiences, cultures, and viewpoints. ACE provides access to the arts and fosters a spirit of inquiry, creativity, and reflection at Great Basin College.


The annual GBC Film Festival and other artistic ACE projects are funded, in part, by grants from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the WESTAF TourWest grant program.


The ACE Committee is also responsible for the Argentum literary magazine. Visit the Argentum web page and learn how you can contribute your own literary and artistic talents.


Have an idea for new events? Want to help? Contact Angie de Braga at the Continuing Education department at 775-753-2231 for more information!



Sponsored by the GBC Arts & Cultural Enrichment Committee and a WESTAF TourWest grant, Great Basin College welcomes the Richter Uzur Duo.


Date: Thursday, March 5, 2015

Location: Great Basin College Theatre, Chilton Circle

When: 7:30 PM
Tickets: TBA


The Richter Uzur Duo plays a whimsical mashed-up blend of classical, world, and rock music.Viktor Uzur and Brad Richter are each master musicians of the highest caliber with global solo careers, major international awards and intensive training from two of the world’s most lauded musical institutions (The Moscow Conservatory and The Royal College of Music respectively). While developing into classical virtuosi as students, Brad and Viktor cut their teeth in rock bands – Viktor as an electric guitarist and Brad as a guitarist and singer. They also delved into folk and world music, eventually setting those interests aside to pursue their classical concert careers. Since the “RUDuo” was founded in 2005 they have discovered a way to blend all of the musical styles they love and audiences have as much fun listening to the results as Brad and Viktor have playing.

The Richter Uzur Duo is presented by the GBC ACE Committee.
