Darlene Richard

Cellist

Darlene has lived in Las Vegas for 6 years and has been a part of the HSO since 2008.
She grew up just outside of Detroit, Michigan, where she learned to play the cello. She has pursued playing in symphonies across the globe wherever her travels have taken her from Chicago, IL to far away Queensland, Australia. Darlene works as a licensed veterinary technician in Summerlin. Darlene loves living in Vegas, where the true outdoor adventurist can partake in many sports, specifically rock climbing, downhill skiing, hiking and canyoneering.
