Announcing our Season Restart

Welcome to our Spring-Summer Season! It is 2022 and that means the Sierra High Notes is preparing for the Spring season. We will be beginning rehearsals on Wednesday January 26th at the Faith Lutheran Church, 2075 West 7th Street, Reno, NV 89503. We will be doing administrative paperwork at 6:30 PM with singing starting around 7:00 PM.

As a Community Chorus, everyone is welcome to sing with us. There are seasonal dues of $75.00 per person to help offset costs. If you have never sung with us before, please arrive early so that we can get you into the right spot! If you are a returning singer, please return any music that you might still have in your possession. Thanks.

Regarding Coronavirus, we do ask that everyone be vaccinated. If you are not, please let us know so that we can advise everyone. Also, if you are immunodeficient, please let us know so that we can take precautions including wearing masks if that is most appropriate. We did many of our singing engagements this past winter in masks.

Hope To See You There

Concert at the Museum

It’s showtime again.

We had some hiccups getting this one going but we are finally getting it all put together. Our concert will be at the National Auto Museum ~ The Harrah Collection on the corner of Lake and Mill Streets. The date will be Sunday December 19th at

2pm. We are currently working with the Museum regarding admission. That detail will be going out on social media as soon as it is decided. As you may know, we strive to do all our performances free of charge. Stay tuned to this website or our Facebook page for up to date information.

A Huge Thank You!

Everyone knows that the Covid shutdown hurt just about every business. Nonprofit groups mat have been hurt even more as the grant process got stopped and altered. So it has been with the Sierra High Notes. We had enough money to do Artown but our future has been in doubt.

We contacted the National Auto Museum about partnering on a joint community service effort for Christmas. Things were moving forward and the Sierra High Notes were going to have a place to sing for Christmas. Then the unthinkable happened. Issues caused the program to be cancelled and suddenly we had no venue to perform.

We continued to discuss this with the Auto Museum and they decided to host our concert.  WooHoo! So, with many thanks to the National Auto Museum, the Sierra High Notes with be giving a Christmas Concert on Sunday December 19th at 2pm.  Titled simply, Concert at the Museum, we will be performing in the auditorium in the Museum. It is a nice facility that seats about 157. Admission is free but there is suggested donation of $20.  Remember, we depend on your generosity for our financial survival! Thank you all for supporting the Arts.

In Memory of: Lois Craik

In October of 2020 Lois Craik passed from us. As her husband, I ask you to take a moment to leave your thoughts of her on the memorial website linked below. I am holding off on a Celebration of Life for her because of the pandemic. I hope to have it on August 25, 2021, her birthday. Lois touched so many people and I did not want a “virtual memorial.” Such a group should come together as celebrate her life with love and joy and community. These were concepts she aspired to.

SHN at the Balloon Races 2019

Thank you to everyone who came out to support us at the Great Reno Balloon Race. As always the balloons are beautiful. We hope the crowd liked our selections. It’s often difficult to judge the crowd because so much is going on. Afterall we are just the cream filling between the Dawn Patrol and the Mass Ascension.

Thank you to Eric Kao, Debbie Bero, and Kevin Craik for the pictures.
