About San Ramon Voices

San Ramon Voices

San Ramon Voices is a 501-C3 corporation formed to assist the award winning SRVHS Choir Program.   We support the choirs’ rich variety of activities,  by sponsoring several major fundraisers each year (including our annual dinner show and auction) to help raise money for the program, the choir accompanist, and tours.    We also sell concert tickets, seek community grants, and recommend per student donations for uniforms.  Finally, all SRVoices positions are volunteer with choir parents and friends supplying approximately 5,000 volunteer hours per year.

About the Accompanist

Laurie Hugill is a native of Burbank, California and she has been the accompanist at SRVHS for over 15 years.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in music from the University of Southern California.

Ms. Hugill enjoys a very active and varied career as the staff accompanist not only for SRVHS, but also for the Danville Girls Chorus and several local private instrumental and vocal studios. She is loved by all who have the good fortune of getting to work with her.
