Diablo Vista Chorus is proud to have the following quartets associated with our chorus. We endorse all of them as excellent singers and entertainers, suitable for any occasion...
Tenor Chris (Mission Valley) started singing harmony as a child with her sister. She's currently the Region 12 Arranger Program Manager, and Tenor Section Leader for MVC, where she sang with her daughter at Carnegie Hall. She’s been a frequent volunteer at Mountain Harmony Camp and loves passing BBS to young people.
Lead Karen Fish (Chapter at Large) has been the coach for Ladies First, an Award winning YWIH chorus at Concord High School for 29 years. She is classically trained, but fully converted to barbershop! Karen is also part of three generations singing in Region 12. Her daughter and granddaughter are also Sweet Adelines!
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 the 2022 first place Regional quartet, LiveWire.
Bass Lysanda Lee (Mission Valley) used to sing popular commercial jingles as a child to customers in her family-owned grocery store. She would later annoy her friends by singing the harmony and instrumental riffs in songs on the radio. She now gets to share the fun as a Bass section leader and Assistant Director in her chorus.
Verve was formed in May 2014 and works diligently exploring the art of a cappella singing with an emphasis on the barbershop style!
Tenor Averi Brickson (BASC) is a lifelong barber-shopper, successful business owner and Mom to three energetic and adorable children!
Lead Julie Harrelson (PEC) is a passionate and experienced Special Events and Client Relations professional and Mom to a Senior at Baylor University in Waco, Texas and is racking up lots of miles with Southwest Airlines!
Baritone Laura Bode (BASC) is a successful software sales engineer, engaging in extensive travel, and when not singing or working, she indulges her love of nature photography.
Bass Jen Higgins (CAL) is a wine club manager and Mom to an extremely active pre-teen son and precocious toddler!
Verve is devoted to family, community, music and each other and looks forward to learning and growing in the a cappella art form!
