Rebecca Richards, Director, has been a member of Sweet Adeline International since 1991, but says she really started at the age of four singing baritone to all of her mother’s quartet songs. From singing in the church choir as a child to singing with numerous choirs in school as a teenager to harmonizing at home with her kids as an adult, being a part of a vocal music ensemble has always been an integral part of her life. Rebecca is a member of the five-time Region 8 Championship Quartet, Ruby Blue, and has been the proud director of High Country Chorus since March 2014. When she’s not singing, she’s keeping up with her three very busy sons Nicholas, Tyler and Zachary.
Jacque Reinig, Assistant Director, has had the pleasure of singing with High Country Chorus since 1987. She is grateful to have had the opportunity to learn and grow with the chorus and for the privilege of acting Front Line Director, 2002 to 2014. Since “retiring” from that role, Jacque now enjoys serving as the bass section leader and choreographer. Her love of barbershop music and dancing go hand-in-hand and additionally, she choreographs and trains the chorus tap team – High Country on Tap! Above all, Jacque is most grateful for all of the wonderful friendships developed while making beautiful music with the lovely ladies of High Country Chorus.
Sherry Feller, Assistant Director, has a BA in Vocal Music Education. Introduced to Sweet Adelines by her mother as a young girl in southeastern Michigan, Sherry began her lifelong membership in 1976 in California, Region 12. In 1985, she joined High Country Chorus and participated in the first contest in Hawaii where the chorus won first place! Her passion for singing, teaching and directing are fulfilled in the world of Sweet Adelines. The educational tools, schools and workshops provided are of the highest quality. Sherry is a novice arranger and derives great joy in watching the transformation of singers as they develop vocal and leadership skills and become an integral part of a worldwide sisterhood. Quartet and chorus singing is great but she especially enjoys directing those beautiful voices in a memorable song.
