This is Arlene’s second competing quartet and she is thrilled to be singing with the talented ladies of Synergy.
Victoria Shernicoff (Baritone) has been a Sweet Adeline since 2002. Liberty Oak Chorus has been her “one and only,” and she is proud to be a part of the music leadership serving as Baritone Section Leader. Victoria can’t remember a time when music was not an integral part of her life; participating in chorus, band and dance classes from elementary school through high school, earning a Bachelor of Arts in music at college, and working at a classical record company in the music industry in NYC for many years. When not singing, Victoria now works as an Assistant Project Manager at Princeton University. She is grateful that her biggest fans, husband Michael and sons Harrison and Matthew, are so supportive of this extremely time consuming “hobby.”.
