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.

​​ MEMBER OF NOTE

Sarita Shaevitz -2020

As you look across the front row of Jersey Harmony’s risers, there are, of course, smiling faces.  You may pause when coming upon Sarita Shaevitz, always bright, energized, and exuding friendliness!  For Sarita, this is not just a “show” face.  Her warmth and positive attitude are constant and contagious and come from within.  As a member of Jersey Harmony’s lead section, she is diligent in being performance ready and participates in many events throughout the year.

 

Sarita lives in Princeton with her very musical family, husband Josh, teen daughter Maina (also a JHC member) and son Rishi.  The entire Shaevitz family often support Sarita and all the JHC members, sharing their musical talents in a variety of ways. 

Despite a demanding career, a frequent traveler, and very active family life, Sarita fills the roll of many JHC tasks.  Each week she prepares an informative and attractive “Hot Sheet”, our chorus newsletter.  She is quick to offer to host special chorus events at her lovely home and often gives technical assistance such as hosting Zoom meetings. 

We are grateful and privileged to have Sarita as part of the JHC family and so pleased to honor her as our 2020 Member of Note!
