My Students

Reign is Iowa's premiere high school a cappella ensemble. For 13 years, the gentlemen of Reign have been performing for the students of West Des Moines Valley High School and Central Iowa. These 18 talented sophomores, juniors, and seniors are passionate about music, especially a cappella performances and competitions, such as the International Competition of High School A cappella (ICHSA). They've participated in ICHSA four times since 2013, earning several awards. At the end of each year, Reign is proud to perform their spring concert, entertaining hundreds of their supporters.

My Project

Iowa's top high school a cappella group (Reign) is hoping to purchase a replacement keyboard for their practice room!

Their keyboard piano from 1995 finally breathed its last, and by replacing the older keyboard, it will give the group a necessary and important resource during practices to help them prepare for performances at these competitions, as well as performances in the Des Moines area.

Each of these students is incredibly talented, and this a cappella group provides these gentlemen with musical camaraderie, as well as opportunities to perform newer music than they perform in traditional choirs.
