Tenor Chris Jacobs (Mission Valley) volunteers in Region 12’s Mountain Harmony Camp every year and loves passing on the barbershop style to young people. She’s a new empty-nester, with a daughter who just finished college and son just starting.

Lead Karen Fish (Diablo Vista) has been the coach for Ladies First, a YWIH barbershop class at Concord High for 22 years.  She is classically trained, but fully converted to barbershop!

Baritone Suzanne Olsen (Diablo Vista) joined Sweet Adelines in Tokyo, Japan in 1986.  She started choruses in Bangkok, and Mexico City.  Since moving back to the US she’s sung in 4 choruses and is joyfully singing with her 3rd top 5 Regional quartet, LiveWire.
