About Nancy Bergman, director of the Saddlebrooke Barbershop Chorus

Nancy brings her musical experience in the craft of harmony singing to the Cañada del Oro Barbershop Chorus. Each Tuesday evening 20-plus men gather at SaddleBrooke's Desert View Performing Arts Center complex to expand their love of singing in 4-part harmony, barbershop style, to expand the repertoire of songs they love to sing, and to expand their knowledge of the art of singing.

Nancy has been a barbershop harmony enthusiast since 1950; her quartet won the International Championship of Sweet Adelines in 1954. She served as Executive Secretary and managing director of the international headquarters of Sweet Adelines from 1956 to 1968. She is a Master Arranger of barbershop harmony, composer, master chorus director and coach, certified judge, certified international faculty member, and was honored with the organization's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.

Nancy continues to provide the 50,000 world-wide membership of Sweet Adelines and the Barbershop Harmony Society with 4-part harmony arrangements. She coaches quartets and choruses, and serves on regional and international faculties. She is a skilled teacher and an artist in her craft....and her enthusiasm is catching! She brings to singers with little or no musical background the opportunity to learn to sing with confidence. She inspires them to accomplishment and increased self-esteem. She brings out the showman in them, and teaches them to ENJOY THE APPLAUSE! The CDOBC door is open to all interested men — the chorus members consider Nancy as a wonderful inspiration and gift.
