Bella Voce hosted our fifth annual Treble Voice Turnout event on Thursday, October 12th, at Damonte Ranch High School. This is becoming a wonderfully anticipated annual event for high school singers in Reno as well as Bella Voce. We gathered five treble voice (women’s) choirs from five Washoe County High Schools for a choral festival and there were 250 singers as well as many additional family and friends in the audience. We sang for and with each other, appreciating the joy and strength that can come from singing together throughout life. For details, see the article under Latest News.
From the Musical Director:
The singers in Bella Voce have been hard at work to prepare beautiful music for you in December! The centerpiece of our December concerts is a contemporary work for women's choir, percussion, harp, flute, and cello. We know you will love Sir Christemas! The larger work will be paired with several other songs, some new and some familiar to you.
We are eager to share our beautiful music with you and your friends in Reno at 7:30pm on Friday, December 1st at St. John's Presbyterian Church, in Carson City at 7:00pm on Saturday, December 2nd at the Shepherd of the Sierra Lutheran Church, and in Reno at 4:00pm on Sunday, December 3rd. (If you are a regular Bella Voce attendee, please note that these dates are on different weekends than has been our tradition in the past.)
We are always thrilled to share our music with you – and invite you to experience our concert with someone you know who may need a breath of fresh air, a new tune to this season.

Welcome to Bella Voce Reno
BELLA VOCE (Italian for beautiful voice) is northern Nevada’s premier women’s chorus. We have been singing for over 30 years and are known for excellent vocal technique, beautiful sound, and high quality performances of both classical and contemporary music. Based in Reno, Bella Voce consists of 25-30 auditioned singers, ages 22 to 70+, who come from a variety of professions, musical training, and musical backgrounds. We perform two major programs every year, in December and May, in both Reno and Carson City. We also perform in other venues and community events during the year. As members of Bella Voce, we share a love of singing and enjoy the challenges of performing music that is innovative and diverse, familiar and new. And we especially appreciate the opportunity to share our voices and our hearts with our audiences. We welcome you to our concerts and hope that you will join us soon!
