A little about the members of Sound Advice:

Our tenor, Ginger, is an elementary school music teacher and mom to 3 kids. She is the Vienna-Falls chorus' Associate Director and was also director of a chorus while living in Hawaii. After years of following her Army-Orthopedic-surgeon husband all over the world, she has managed to get him to retire from the Army and stay in one place for more than 3 years.

Bonnie, bass, is the empty-nester of the group, having figured out how to keep her 2 grown children from returning home to live off Mom and Dad. She even works part-time FOR her son's construction business. Being the wife of a retired Fairfax County Police Officer, Bonnie has the job of making sure we do everything "by the book."

Carrie, when not singing lead, spends most of her time being mom to Sarah and Ryan and occasionally works for a non-profit doing aviation research. She’s also the “barberbrat” of the group, having grown up watching her Barbershopper father in many a show and competition.

Beth has sung with choruses in Japan, California, and now right here in Fairfax, Virginia. In addition to being Sound Advice's baritone and Vienna-Falls’ choreographer, Beth is a pre-school teacher and sensory integration specialist. Her house never meets a stranger - human or animal. Just ask her 3 kids, 2 dogs, 3 cats, turtle and horse (who fortunately does not actually live INSIDE her home).

Although they all come from different backgrounds, the one thing they have in common outside of singing is motherhood, having 10 children among them. Giving "sound advice" is one thing they all agree on - but don't ask their kids....they already know it all.  
   
 

Sound Advice has been singing together since 1999, and is the 2010 champion for SAI Region 14 . All four members are also Vienna-Falls chorus musical leaders and even coach other choruses and quartets throughout the region. Yet through it all, all four have managed to remain married to their first husbands, all of whom are left-handed. What are the odds of that?
