Who's Who

Our Director

Kat Britt Director of Jersey Harmony Chorus

Kat Britt knew she wanted to sing barbershop when she saw The Buffalo Bills in the movie "The Music Man". She joined Sweet Adelines Intl in June 1996, singing in her first chorus AND her first quartet!

 

Now she sings with Harmony Celebration Chorus, directs Jersey Harmony Chorus, and sings baritone in Holiday Belles Quartet. All of these groups are part of the Sweet Adelines International organization.

 

​In 2012, Kat won Region 15's Novice Director award.  In 2016 she led the chorus to a second place win in the Small Chorus division and became a Harmony 500 Director. At the 2017 competition, under Kat's direction, Jersey Harmony placed second again in the Small Chorus category, and also took home the Most Improved Chorus award.

​​ Member of Note 2022

Member of Note 2022 Anita Barry

Anita Barry, our choice for “Member of Note” in 2022, is the matriarch of our Jersey Harmony family.

 

A Sweet Adeline for 55 years, you’ll find her in the center of the risers, blowing the pitch pipe for us. She continues as an astute bass section leader, a valuable member of the music team and reminds us of all regional events and programs. When show time comes, Anita also handles the program book. She is a consistent attendee at our outside performances and is always relied upon to be prepared and helpful.

 

Anita first received the Member of Note honor in 2012, but we all feel it needs repeating. She continues to be a vibrant, hardworking, contributing member. We are so proud to have celebrated Anita’s 90th birthday with her this year.

We all send well wishes to Anita and are looking forward to her 100th
birthday celebration!
