This week’s 5 best bets for arts & culture in Las Vegas

Las Vegas Philharmonic

Award-winning cellist Oliver Herbert is 18. This weekend, he’s playing something from 1877 — Tchaikovsky’s “Variations on a Rococo Theme” — as soloist with the Las Vegas Philharmonic. (Oliver and Philharmonic music director Donato Cabrera previously worked together with the San Francisco Youth Orchestra.) Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6 (“Pathetique”) and D.J. Sparr’s “Dreams of the Old Believers” round out the program for the concerts at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall. For tickets ($26-$96), call 702-749-2000 or visit lvphil.org.

‘Baile y Movimento’

Los Angeles-based musical group Buyepango and University of Notre Dame ethnomusicologist Alex Chavez headline an exploration of Latino music and culture that’s “education through art,” according to organizer David Olmeca of UNLV’s Latin American studies department. The music and discussions run from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the Winchester Cultural Center, 3130 S. McLeod Drive; for tickets ($10 in advance, $15 on event day), call 702-455-7340.

Ice Cream Festival

With temperatures approaching triple digits, the chance to chill is welcome — especially at the Springs Preserve’s annual Ice Cream Festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Along with frozen treats, the festival menu features carnival games, a bubble play station, face painting, storytelling, a magic show, even classes where kids can create their own ice cream flavor. For tickets ($8 for kids 3-12, $10 for adults), visit www.springspreserve.org.)

‘The Diary of Anne Frank’

On Monday, Jewish Repertory Theatre of Nevada presents “The Diary of Anne Frank” to 1,700 Clark County School District eighth-graders at The Smith Center’s Reynolds Hall, spreading the message of “No Tolerance for Intolerance.” But all local audiences can experience the drama — inspired by the title character’s coming of age during the Holocaust — at 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Temple Sinai, 9001 Hillpointe Road. For tickets ($18-$37), call 818-994-7050 or click on www.jrtn.org.

‘The Collective’

Cirque du Soleil’s collective creativity is evident on stage — and off stage during its 11th annual art exhibit, “The Collective,” featuring 33 paintings, sculpture, photography and mixed-media works by the company’s local performers, technicians and support staff. “The Collective” continues through June 14 at the Eden Gallery inside the Arts Factory, 107 E. Charleston Blvd. Visit edenartstudioandgallery.com for more information.
