Samantha comes from a long tradition of family singers. A fifth-generation barbershopper on her father’s side and third-generation on her mother’s, Samantha has the vocal ability and “ear” to sing several different parts.
In her twelve years as a Harmony member, Samantha has already won many international medals with her chorus and competed with four quartets! In 2009, she sang lead with Three and a Half. In 2012, she sang tenor with Sister Act, 2012 International 11th Place Quartet and winner of the Findlay Plaque (novice quartet award), along with her sister, Christina, and Amanda and Andrea Hutchings, sisters from Maine-ly Harmony. Samantha also sings baritone with Family Fun, 2018 Area 2 4th Place Quartet, with her mother, Renee, and another mother-daughter team, Diane and Carey Fagerstrom. Samantha is the lead of the 2016 Harmony Queens, Taken 4 Granite with Renee, Christina, and close family friend Katrine Dickau. She directed the Minor Chords chorus at International in 2014 as well as directing the Generations Chorus from 2012 to 2016. Samantha’s mother, Renee, sister, Christina, and her grandmother, Pat Longchamp, a charter member of Champlain Echoes, also sing with Generations Chorus.
Samantha is in her final year of college at Plymouth State University studying Music Education and is intending on becoming a music teacher in the near future.
