SongBird Quartet got together in 2019 when Iris Christ (Lead) suggested the group learn “Song Bird,” a love song written by Eva Cassidy, to serenade Iris’s husband at his 80th surprise birthday party. They decided to continue on together and named the quartet SongBird for sentimental reasons.
Iris and Marcia Cornell (Tenor) have sung together in various quartets since joining the Shore Notes in 2002. Iris moved to Hilton Head in 2000 from Cincinnati, and Marcia moved here in 1996 from Summit, NJ. Iris became the Musical Director of the Shore Notes in 2021. Sue Gordon (Baritone) moved from New Jersey, where she sang with Ramapo Valley Chorus for 15 years. She has been a Sweet Adeline for over 30 years and is a dual member of Song of Atlanta, which won Third Place in Sweet Adelines’ International Competition this past September in Phoenix. Theresa Beck (Bass) moved from Atlanta, where she sang with Song of Atlanta for over 30 years.
Together this foursome has over 100 years of singing experience! SongBird is available for Singing Valentines and any other festive occasion. Contact Marcia at firstname.lastname@example.org
