Eva accepted the position of director of Triad A Cappella Connection in June 2015. She has been a member of Sweet Adelines International since 1983. Born in New Jersey, Eva had her first performance on television in New York City at the ripe old age of four. She sang two songs, both popular with Sweet Adelines today, "When the Red Red Robin" and "If You Knew Susie Like I Know Susie." Eva wore sequin and feather costumes - a Sweet Adeline in training!
As a high school student, Eva won a Lincoln Center Student Award and auditioned at the Metropolitan Opera at the age of sixteen. She studied with a voice teacher through the Met for two years, and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education at State University of NY, at Potsdam. She earned her Masters degree in Music Education from the University of Buffalo. Eva taught in the public schools in Buffalo, NY, and then in Chapel Hill, NC.
Eva and her husband, Lenny, a veteran barbershopper, live in Greensboro. When her daughters, Alicia and Maia were small children, she taught guitar and voice lessons. After joining Sweet Adelines International, Eva put her singing talents to work in both the Golden Triad Chorus and her quartet, Esprit de' Corps. Her quartet won regional contest four times. Including Harmony Classic, Eva has appeared on the International stage six times since becoming a Sweet Adeline. Her singing was so inspirational, that both of her girls have been members of our chorus.
When she isn't spending her time working with her dentist husband or spoiling her grandchildren, she is working to make us all better singers and happy members of a top notch Sweet Adelines chorus.
