In The Zone
In The Zone…the musical zone is what has brought this fun loving, foursome together!
Entertaining others while sharing the joy of barbershop singing is the hallmark of this quartet.
Ms. Cellaneous formed just before Region 21’s Spring contest in April, 2010 and earned our first medal as a quartet in 2011 placing 5th overall. Since then we were thrilled to earn 4th Place medals in 2012 along with achieving the Most Improved Quartet award and being voted Audience Favorite Quartet!
We describe ourselves as an accumulation of odds and ends, everything short of the kitchen sink.
We all share a common love of four legged creatures, road trips and breakfast at 3 am at Denny’s. Put it all together and you have four ladies who like to live, laugh and love life to the fullest via their barbershop harmony! Mary and Sarah are members of the 2011 International Chorus Champions The Scottsdale Chorus. Chris and Susan are former members of the 2011 International Silver Medalist Chorus Harborlites. Chris co-directs the Golden Sands Chorus of Long Beach California which is in Region 11.
Golden Sparx would love to perform for you at your next event.
