This week on Vocal HERspective is an interview with Tessa Walker – Harmony, Incorporated Harmony Queen and Sweet Adelines International Rising Star with Hot Pursuit Quartet and music educator toughing it out in the temporary normal.
For Kris’ first official episode, she got to invite her first guest! For episode 62, Kris and Amanda sit down with Kris’ quartet mate, Lynn Hughes. Together, they became Harmony, Incorporated Harmony Queens with Hot Topic in 2003. There’s a little bit of reminiscing, but a lot of insight onto what made that group click, what they wish could have been different, and how music continues to play a role in Lynn’s life.
After decades of gender separation on the barbershop stage, the mixed ensemble movement is really starting to flourish.
