Jenilee Fisher (pictured right)
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She has been singing since age 5, participating in various church and school choirs throughout her life. She studied music and voice briefly in college, and considers herself a lifelong student of vocal pedagogy.
For 6 years she directed many elementary and middle school children's choirs, as well as directing plays and other children's productions. While fairly new to barbershop, she appreciates the unique style of the art form, seeing it as a great way for singers of all kinds to expand their skill set. She currently lives in Bend, Oregon.
We are especially thankful for Jenilee's ability to get us warmed up and unified to sing with such excellent vocal exercises.
