Balancing Act Quartet would like to thank Christine Gunderson for singing with us during this pandemic year!  However, other demands are now making it difficult for her to continue quartetting, and she is stepping down as tenor in the quartet.  We are now looking for another tenor!  We are located in the Central NJ area, love to do performances, and are interested in competing. We have a large repertoire and like to rehearse weekly.  We also love to have fun--on chorus weekends away, we are among the last to stop singing and go to bed!  If this sounds interesting to you please contact us...

Colleen Marron  May 16, 1950 February 19, 2021 Long Island Sound Chorus


     Just hours before Colleen passed on, one of our members posted a check for her dues along with an appreciative note thanking Colleen for her generous, reliable service as our chorus’s Finance Coordinator. The news of her passing came as a shock. Our chorus members could not believe that Colleen was gone. She was always there for every rehearsal, management team meeting, fundraiser, contest and show.  Colleen received anesthesia for a dental procedure, came home, went to bed,  and never...
