High Gear

High Gear is composed of Christina Tramack, Jen Selby, Ariana Schmidt and Deb Green, all Area 2 members who sing with New England Voices in Harmony. Christina and Jen, lead and baritone, were itching to try out new voice parts and were curious to hear how this formation would sound, so they gave it a shot. As for the name, Christina says, “We liked the thought of something that said
‘high quality’ and ‘exciting’. High Gear was the perfect choice!”

Getting together to sing, even before the issues of 2020, has raised challenges for this group of women. Deb lives in Florida during part of the year and Ariana is a Residence Assistant in college. All four are very active with New England Voices in Harmony, leaving little spare time to meet even virtually, but they remain connected, nonetheless.

The blend of their four beautiful voices from these four amazing women will certainly kick any performance into “high gear!”

Out On A Limb

Out On A Limb formed during the banquet at our Area 2 Contest in 2018, just by chance. We sang a song or two for some friends, then decided to try performing on the NEVIH quartet showcase in August. Diane Fagerstrom sang tenor, Diane Reynolds sang lead, Cathy DeCoste sang baritone, and Joanne O’Connor sang bass, Rather by accident, Joanne had an arrangement of “You Gotta Have Heart” from her prior quartet experience and we worked on it. That song has a baseball theme, so we decided to go in that direction. But, what else could we sing? Joanne started writing a parody based on “When There’s Love At Home” (Get it? Love AT HOME plate??) and she brought it to the first rehearsal. We loved it, she did such a great job, but then we all started to chip in and tweaked it to perfection. What a blast! We sang on the showcase and had fun, but mostly our rehearsals were just hilarious, laughing from start to finish and some singing too. In the spring of 2019, we took the plunge and registered to compete at our Area 2 Contest with a goal to make people laugh, have fun and not come in last. We accomplished all three. The judges gave us some great feedback which we are implementing and starting on some new music. We plan to improve, laugh and have more fun. Thanks to our biggest fans and coaches, Diane and David Patterson!

Second Chants

Our quartet and friendships started off with a single tag – sung at the ladies’ international chorus contest in Verona, New York. (David had never sung in a chorus before!) Now the four of us enjoy choosing songs that fit our personalities and that cause us to have nothing but fun in our singing.

David Martinez (lead) & Joyce Desjardins (baritone) and Kim (tenor) & Gil Dubray (bass) are a testament to the fact that the best gift in life, and in love, is a second chance – or in this case a Second Chants.

We hope that the joy we have singing together brings a smile to your face as we perform. Thanks for letting us share with you!

Sweet & Sour

Sweet and Sour got together in 2015 to compete in the Northeastern District Mixed Quartet Contest and placed 2nd! This quartet consists of Christina (tenor), Samantha (lead), and Joshua (bass) Tramack along with Mert Danna (baritone) who recently got engaged to Samantha. This group brings a lot of energy and excitement to the stage and we hope you enjoy all the sweetness (and maybe some sour) that this quartet brings!

Taken 4 Granite

The members of TAKEN 4 GRANITE know that sisters, mothers, friends, and God-given gifts can easily be underappreciated and overlooked. So, in the autumn of 2013, the quartet seized the opportunity to come together. Katrine Dickau (tenor and close family friend), Christina Tramack (baritone), Renée Tramack (bass and mother of Christina and Samantha), and Samantha Tramack (lead and Christina’s sister) vowed to not take each other, or the music they create, for granted.
