WE ARE SO HAPPY THAT YOU'RE INTERESTED IN JOINING
HIGH DESERT HARMONY CHORUS!
We rehearse 6:30-9:00 on Mondays and visitors are welcome to stop in anytime! Plan to arrive by 6:15 to check in on your first visit. We meet at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, 4895 S McCarran Blvd, Reno, NV 89502, but are not associated with the church.
It's OK if you can't make every rehearsal -- our attendance requirements are not overly rigid, because... well, we're a women's chorus so we get it. Life can get in the way.
Auditions are held year-round and are stress-free. They are intended to help you figure out how you can learn music in the way best for you.
More information about HDH for prospective members is available in this document.
♦ Initiation fees for new members are currently being waived - monthly dues are $30 to cover operating expenses
♦ The COVID-19 vaccination (2 shots) is required in order to visit rehearsals in-person as a guest or member.
We are so excited to welcome you to the risers!
If you have any questions, please contact Lea Unruh: 775-560-5147,
Welcome From Our Certified Director,
We're so thrilled you've found us! I've been a Sweet Adeline since 2004, when this chorus joined the organization but was singing with them for several years before that. I've since sung in many choruses and quartets in Reno and the Boston area over the years and have served on administrative and artistic leadership teams. I began directing High Desert Harmony in 2018 and became a Certified Sweet Adelines Director that same year.
But this isn't really about me -- it's about YOU! Together with our leadership teams, I aim to nurture a space where women in our community (YOU!) can come to escape the pressure, monotony, and stress of their (YOUR!) "other" life and flex their (YOUR!) creative muscles. I love that this is a place where trained musicians and amateurs can come together to make beautiful and exciting music in harmony. I love that it can be its own thing to each and every member -- hobby, passion, lifestyle, social/girls' night, release, escape, purpose, whatever it is to you. We all work to provide a space for women to do what they can, when they can, while also progressing artistically, as a group. So, whether you choose to join us or not, I hope you enjoy your time with HDH and remember this special place where women empower each other to harmonize the world.
