Spring Concert Poster, It Is HappinessFrom the Musical Director:

Happy Spring! As I selected music for this spring's concert, I was drawn to listen to longer works for women's choirs and instruments after the amazing success of our Holiday Concerts last year. I came across a larger work by Joan Szymko titled "It is Happiness," using the poetry of Mary Oliver. Mary Oliver describes her poetry as loving the world, capturing the human spirit and nature's complexity with wonder and awe. Joan's musical language is so touching, as she works with the poetry and the poet to really capture the essence of the poem and elevate it with the voices and instruments. I can't wait for you to hear it, along with several other pieces that celebrate spring, nature, and our interaction with the world around us.

We are eager to share our beautiful music with you and your friends at 4:00 pm on May 11th at Shepherd of the Sierra Church in Carson City or at 4:00 pm on May 12th at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Reno. We are always thrilled to share our music with you, and invite you to share our concert with someone you know who may need a breath of fresh air or a new tune for this season. Spread the word that live choral music is strong in Northern Nevada! And enjoy the magical marriage of music and poetry coming together to lighten our loads and clear our heads.

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!

Fifth Annual Treble Voice Turnout!!

 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.
