      Holiday music performed by a capella group, Barbershop Sounds

      Formerly members of the Sweet Adelines International, Barbershop Sounds consists of four Santa Fe-based singers for whom entertaining is their "other life" passion, as well as their avocation. All have also been active and known locally in both their far-ranging professional endeavors, family lives, and community service commitments. Masako Drugan is the "lead", singing the "melody"; while Terese Sanchez (tenor), Bess Harris (baritone), and Jo Snyder (bass) provide the "flavor", rounding out the familiar songs. Their choice of selections is from historic to nostalgic to popular - and for Christmastime, it’s guaranteed that you will know many of their pieces." Singing along" is not only welcome, but encouraged!
