Who's Who

Our Director

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 and directs Jersey Harmony Chorus, both in Sweet Adelines, and sings baritone in Champagne Alley Quartet in Harmony Incorporated and Sweet Adelines.


​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.
