Barbershop harmony has been a mainstay in Sally's life since infancy. In 1956, Sally's father's quartet, The Merrynotes, were the Northeast District Champions. On long drives, her dad would have the children singing in 4-part harmony to such barbershop classics as Down By the Old Mill Stream and I Want a Girl Just Like the Girl that Married Dear Old Dad. Sally enjoyed harmonizing so much she would even harmonize to the hum of the tires as the family drove down the highway! It’s no small wonder that she sings the baritone part.
Sally has been actively involved in Sweet Adelines since 1991, when she joined the Post Road Chorus, Shrewsbury, MA. She held the position of president of the board of directors for two terms, and she was honored to serve as musical director for five years. Sally has also had the pleasure of twice singing on the international stage with the Harmony on the Sound Chorus from Trumbull, CT. Since 2004, she has been singing with her quartet, Treblesome. The quartet enjoys participating in competition, but derives their greatest satisfaction from performing for a wide variety of audiences.
Sally joined the Merrimack Valley Chorus in 2009. Shortly after her arrival she was selected to be on the music staff and eventually became baritone section leader as well as assistant director. Sally is currently enrolled in the Director Certification Program.
